Is there a reason that the reply-to header is not set for the
mailing list?

Just hit "reply to all".

Which ends up sending a useless extra copy to the OP, like you will have gotten with this reply. I get 100 or more e-mails a day like most people and don't need extras in my inbox. And, since the reply-to-sender often gets there before the reply-to-list, I sometimes get back an e-mail meant for the list when the other person hits "reply all" but there's only me to reply to.

Sorry about the poor grammar.  I'm American.  ;-)

Then use a mail client that has "Reply List" - eg Thunderbird. I just hit the Reply List button for this msg and it goes to the list and nowhere else...

Thunderbird and its derivatives leave a lot to be desired on a Mac IME, in terms of integration with the operating system and other applications, so I don't use 'em.
