Believe it or not, Outlook is actually doing the right thing (here, at
least). Some users' mail clients put the user's address into a Reply-To
header, other users' clients don't. If the mailing list sees a Reply-To
header, it simply adds itself to the header; otherwise, it explicitly
adds a Reply-To using the list address. Those whose clients put their
own address into the Reply-To header will cause a proper client (and
Outlook, it seems ;) to default to sending a reply to that user and to
the list--regardless of whether you click Reply or Reply All. Note,
however, that the sender can always delete the non-list address from the
message before sending.
It seems that GMail quite often (always?) puts the sender's address in
the Reply-To header. Also, many users of other clients (i.e.
Thunderbird, Mozilla Mail, etc.) feel that they have to fill in the box
for "Reply To" in their e-mail client's configuration. When they do,
their client will send a Reply-To header.
Also, the mailing list also allows you to specify that you should not
receive a copy from the list if your address was in the "To" or "CC"
headers. I guess it was easier to do that than to force all users to
make sure their e-mail clients are "properly configured". Here,
"properly configured" means if a message is sent by an individual and
the From and Reply-To headers contain the same value, the Reply-To
header should not be sent (one reason for my definition is the issue
we're discussing :).
