Yes and no. It also is related to the headers of the original mail, you
reply to. The author of the mail, who wants only receive mails from the
list could control how your "Reply" works, by choosing the appropriate
headers. This has got advantages and disadvantages, hence the
difference between different MUAs, e.g. Evolution invokes mailing list
replies by the "All" ("Group Reply") button and Claws by the "Reply"
button. But indeed list settings affect the behaviour of MUAs, too.
I'm not thinking about the mailman feature, that could be turned on
and off by the user. There are settings that only the person who runs
the list change, in this case overriding or keeping the reply-To header.
