Hello, Gerald,

Sorry for my overreacting mail to the proj list.

Does your Mailer have a Group Reply? Then you should use this button

I do not have apple mail nor evolution, but my kmail 1.6.2 (kde 3.3.1)
installation actually has Reply, Reply to Author, Reply to All and Reply
to Mailing List. 

I did not test it, but I think that Reply does the "sanest default" and
thus replies to the list.

But we really should take this discussion to private, as it is off topic
