Basically REPLY-TO-LIST means a reply to a mail should go to the list
1) The list server address is either TO or mentioned in list headers
and TO not different from list server
2) The mail does not specify a REPLY-TO different from list server

So configure Reply button to reply to list which is a behavior as if
user had pushed REPLY-TO-LIST button means basically if claws identifies
a mail coming from a list server and the two rules above is satisfied
then the mails TO field will automatically contain the list server
address and nothing else.

A special case is if the mail contains CC headers in which case these
addresses remains as CC (all though very onusual for list replies).
