MUA = mail user agent, or mail client in today's
lingo [1]

I use Gnus and reply to posts with

However the mail client of a responder cannot know
either if the OP is subscribed or not. So it must be
provided as header data in either the original
message or appended by the ML distribution

Here (info "(emacs) Mail Headers") it says

       One of more address(es) to use as default recipient(s) for
       follow-up messages.  This is typically used when you reply to a
       message from a mailing list that you are subscribed to, and want
       replies to go to the list without sending an extra copy to you.
