Quite right. Mutt adds it by default for subscribed lists. Good
discussion at http://cr.yp.to/proto/replyto.html and it's actually
not a bad thing. Also it was not the cause of my mistake.

I noticed there was a Reply-To header (with the list address) in
Andreas' message (but not in messages from others) and that's what
steered me and mutt off track.

Sorry for the noise.
