See /Comfiguration/Preferences/Compose/Writing, 'Reply invokes
mailing list reply'.

See /Message/Reply to/Mailing List.

See /Message/Mailing List/...

Failing those, you can create a folder for a mailing list, filter the
messages into it, and then use the Folder Properties to set the
correct address.

That's where we differ. It's not about sending messages, but about
composing them. Arguably, the current situation is easy to avoid.
Sure it improves one thing and breaks 2 others, that makes a score of
-1 to me :) Since we know that your patch breaks things, it can't
possibly be accepted.

Anyway, Colin's patch is getting close to fixing it, (it also doesn't
break anything), some more work and it will be good.
