But I'm using NNTP transport. Even in such case it should use
support at lists.openmoko.org instead of
gmane.comp.handhelds.openmoko.user. That was bug of mailing software and
I've reported it.
About Reply-To header. Such configuration is less usable
(http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html). I have now 2 buttons
which do exactly the same. What worst one of them changes behaviour -
either it post to author (on some mailing lists and all other mails) or
to group (on other mailing lists).
Additionally it violates RFC 2822 (point 3.6.2): "When the "Reply-To:"
field is present, it indicates the mailbox(es) to which the _author_ of
the message suggests that replies be sent." (my underline) and therefore
cannot by stated as 'correct' (for example - I don't intend to recive
private mails on list so my messages should not have it included). RFC
2369 specifies correct headers (namly List-Post) and they should be used
