I brought this up on atrpms-users once. For some reason on every list 
I'm on, except ATrpms, I can just hit Thunderbird's "Reply" and it 
always goes to the list address. But when responding to an ATrpm message 
"Reply" goes to the sender. I think it has to do with the way the list 
is setup. One user on that list suggested that I just always use "Reply 
All" for any list, sure the sender gets an extra copy, but you know the 
list will get a copy as well.
