Chip's argument against Reply-To: munging is excellent, but one more
bit is worth mentioning -- I believe there is at least one instance
of someone being fired as a direct result of such munging. I don't
remember the details but someone saw a message by a colleague and hit
reply to update him on some company-internal developments. He didn't
notice that the normal reply facility had been hijacked by the list
administrator and consequently broadcast sensitive information to
various competitors, a breach which had severe consequences.
