Uh, no. This is called a 'feature'. The header for the reply-to field
gets set to the list on which it was sent from. No _poster_ has the
ability to change this. If you sent an e-mail to lfs-dev, the reply-to will
be to that list. If you send an e-mail to lfs-dev and lfs-chat, *both*
lists will get two seperate e-mails with different reply-to fields that
match their names. It's as simple as that.
Listar does have numerous bugs and glitches, but the above is normal
functuality for a mailing list.
