I don't think it's a Mailman problem, but something to do with the headers
generated by the offending mail client. I can't be sure, as I don't have
aa message to hand at the moment, but I suspect it might have something to
do with the person putting their own Reply-To: header on their mail, and
instead of replacing it, Mailman is just creating another one, but I don't
see this problem for everyone, and on some mailing lists, the Reply-To
header does not exist at all, which creates problems for me because I've
got Pine set up to use the reply-to address and the nickname thereof to
decide which folder to save stuff to; it's not a major deal because I do
most of this by hand as I read a message, but it's still a pain to have to
keep typing "speakup" instead of just hitting return.
