I posted an earlier message that contained some misleading information.
My problem appears to be with mail messages with mime formatted headers.
The problem as I see it is mime prepends (the users full name possibly delimited by
spaces) before the actual Reply-To: data. In the example below this is Don Murphy.
With a non-mime mailer the username@hostname appears before the description. This
works in all cases for me. Complete details of these header files are given below.
Any help appreciated.
My majordomo installation does not work with the following header:
Note the: Reply-To: Don Murphy <dmurphy@cera>
My mailer gets confused because "Don" is parsed as the reply_to addresss.
The full header is shown below.

grepping the majordomo sources I have come up with two lines that hit mime:
cera% grep -i mime *
majordomo: # treat lines beginning with "-" as END only if this is NOT a MIME
majordomo: # multipart msg. MIME messages should have "Content-Type:"
