There is a while discussion on this topic, start here:

In short, a good email application should have a reply-to-sender
and reply-to-group method (button, key-combination, whatever). :)

Intevation's default policy therefore is to rely on this and
not mangle the reply-to. However if a majority of list-users believes
that this would make life much more easier for them, we can change
it on a per list decision.

Are you using Outlook? As it would be good to know a way for Outlook to deal 
with it.
