Set the right reply adress

could you set the right reply-adress in the mails from the
matplotlib mailinglist?

This is something of a controversial issue. One side is presented at

http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html

and I'm sure the other one has a web page somewhere, too. On lists that
do not munge the reply-to address, such as the matplotlib lists, you
have two options: you can reply to the sender only ('r' in mutt) or
reply to everyone ('g'). On lists that do munge the address, both
commands reply to the complete list.

Ok, I test it with 'g' by this reply, and it works. I hope I can change
my habit to type 'g' instead of 'r'.

Ah, I see the discussion. I am for 'r' :slight_smile:

Or use an email client that allows you to register
your email lists to address this problem.
(Such as Mahogany mail.)
