    Right. Put something like "to reply to the list" and "to
    reply to the writer" in the footer message. That would save
    me, and presumably others, some pasting.

    I could click on the bottom line rather than using my
    emailer's built-in reply function.

    Any way we look at it, this discussion started with
    talking about the footers, and I imagine that footers
    are universal among mail clients, whereas the treatment
    of "reply-to" headers is not. (Reference my Mozilla
    automatically adding the reply-to to my messages.)

    This is also the longest discussion I've seen so far
    that's talking about the LIST rather than Abiword...

    But it brought me out of lurking... :-)
