IMO the problem is the list user that "Answers to all".

Why should I modify my system because another one make errors?

Just because people make errors. Most of them do not care and they do not have any problem. Even ones, who aware, sometimes press wrong button. Relax. If it is so annoying for you, I am afraid, the only option is to fix it on your side.

There are a lot of wide spread ways to use email in a "strange" way. Usually discomfort, even if noticed, does not deserve efforts to enforce strict rules. You might achieve more results in educating people, how to use email properly, by telling your friends and colleagues a story how you made your life better by arranging a couple of filtering rules.

I do not see any reason to complain concerning features available on the server of your email provider

curl --location https://posteo.jp/.well-known/autoconfig/mail/config-v1.1.xml curl: (51) SSL: no alternative certificate subject name matches target host name 'posteo.jp'

curl --location --insecure https://posteo.jp/.well-known/autoconfig/mail/config-v1.1.xml | grep --after-context=1 imap
    <incomingServer type="imap">

openssl s_client --starttls sieve -connect posteo.de:sieve

"IMPLEMENTATION" "Dovecot Pigeonhole"
"SIEVE" "fileinto reject envelope encoded-character vacation subaddress comparator-i;ascii-numeric relational regex imap4flags copy include variables body enotify environment mailbox date ihave vnd.dovecot.duplicate"

P.S. Despite I believe that reply should be sent to the list only unless sender explicitly asked to to retain her/his address in Cc, I do not think it is worth struggling with people who intentionally use reply to all or do not care.
