What i was trying to say was; all my Validator emails go into one
folder. I have a reply-to set for the whole folder. So, if i reply to
any Validator email i know it is going back to the list-serv by default.
There have been discussions i have read in the past (possibly on
other lists) about if a reply-to should be set by the list-serv. There
are pro's and cons for both sides.

I have my own preference. In fact on some lists i have two accounts, one
account i email to the list on receiving nothing and another i read
mails from the list on. If anyone replies direct to me it goes straight
to /dev/nul. Some lists are that bad, this one is not.
