Well, seems like everyone's written something about this.  Guess I will

While I like the IDEA of two comma-separated addresses in the "Reply-To:"
header, it would mean the origial author gets two copies of every reply.
Could make for a lot of sorting trouble if you leave your keyboard alone
a few days. . .

What about two headers:

Reply-To: address@hidden
X-Old-Reply-To: <original address>

All that majordomo would need to do is insert;
" address@hidden
in between "Reply-To:" and " <original address>".  I'm assuming the "X-"
prefix defines this header as a comment to be ignored.

Or -- this might be more complicated to implement, but more useful -- it
could instead put "Old-Reply-To: <original address>" at the top of the
message body, the same way quote strings are inserted.  Either way, for
those rare [?] occasions where people send and recieve mail on two
separate accounts, that would make the original sender's address
available for comparison, if not all that easy to use.


; To UNSUBSCRIBE: Send "unsubscribe lynx-dev" to address@hidden
