Yes, that is most annoying. My complaint (and I guess many more
from other users will follow) is, that if you reply to a message on
the list, the author of that message gets a private mail, too, as
he is listed in the Reply-To:-field. This is *wrong* and must be
corrected (i.e. removed)! (BTW this reply to Alfed's mail is to
one sent to me privately because of that error).
Indeed, the Reply-To header should be nuked.

No, the Envelope-From: only has "cctalk-bounces at classiccmp.org", there's
no "+foo=bar" in it.
And yes, the change in the address fields don't cure the bounce problem
because the envelope from field is unchanged (and *that* field is used for
bounces, not the header fields *within* the mail).
I meant that it should have the +foo=bar thing in it, the example I
was showing was how it _should_ look like, not what it currently looks
like. Was a bit unclear there I suppose.
