    Reply to behavior (9 and 11)

    Is there a setting somewhere that controls the REPLY button behavior?
    Background. I am a volunteer list administrator/moderator for some mailing lists managed with mailman (newly migrated from SMARTLIST).
    SOME users are reporting that when they click the reply button, Outlook generates an email addressed to LISTNAME-bounces@domain.org
    the correct address should be LISTNAME@domain.org Examining the headers of the incoming messages I find that address in the following places--
    Errors-to:
    Sender:
    Received: (here it is parenthetically as envelope-sender)

    The correct address appears in the Reply-to: header

    Users report this with Outlook-2000 and Outlook-2003 (which builds I have not been able to determine)
    I CANNOT duplicate this behavior on my own system Outlook-2003 (11.80.10.8036) SP2

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Mail user agents always should reply to the Reply-To address if it is available, in preference to the From address. Perhaps there is some add-in or other environmental factor confounding the normal behavior?
