The Gnus manual only mentions `Followups-To:' -- however it only uses
that headers for news, not mail.

Gnus always respects such a header; if it finds one, it won't include
the author of the message you're replying to in your reply.  If you're
sending news, this only matters when you also send `courtesy copies',
but if you're sending mail, it's actually more important, since
followups include the sender by default.
