Are you sure that this is what you want?  People will not be easily able
to reply in private mail to you, and I don't think it is right to cater
to broken MUAs that do not have some kind of "reply to list" function.
It is usually better to set Mail-Followup-To, that way the "reply to
all" function will do TRT in most mailers.

Probably from the List-Post header, if it is present (in this list, as
well as the Debian mailinglists, it is, see below), you will have to strip the
mailto: prefix from it.
