Hello Stuart,

Then your outlook doesn't work as it should.

As I wrote, my reply-to is "Uwe Freese <rockbox_at_cool.haxx.se>". So of
you filter mails with "rockbox" or "rockbox_at_cool.haxx.se" (all mails
have that string, including my mails), it should filter it.

ST> rockbox, and hence will reply to rockbox. That's the way the lists are

And as I told you, it's exactly as it behaves with my reply-to, only
that the user can also see to which reader of the mailinglist the mail
is meant for.

I don't see why my setup is a problem at all, only with misconfiguered
mail programs.

Bye, Uwe.
