The reply to button indeed adds only the recipient of the message.  You
want to CC the message to ‘’ too.

These mailing lists are generally handled using email clients (‘MUAs’)
that know how to handle this sort of stuff automatically, so you might
want to try a program like mutt, or Gnus, mu4e, notmuch, or Rmail in

It’s easier to subscribe to a mailing list, redirect mail from it to
some folder, and read and reply from there.

I looked around but couldn’t find any proper introductory material.  But
if you’re interested and nobody comes up with a link to a good intro, I
can walk you through my setup.
