Yes, it does. Setting the Reply-To is a VERY VERY BAD IDEA.. It
messes with lots and lots of things. Most modern MUAs have a
Reply-To-List or Reply-All feature. You should use them.
You shouldnt' set the Reply-To, it causes more problems than
There ARE times when it's reasonable to reply personally to the
poster, and forcing a Reply-To to the list makes that VERY VERY hard.
Educating users to send to the list goes a LONG way.
We've had this discussion before -- please see the archives for more
information. Please DO NOT respond to this message. It's off
topic for this list and we do not need to discuss it again. I have
no tolerance right now, so I appologize in advance to anyone I might
ban from this list for responding to this message.
Have a good night. :)
