The most correct way to do it is to let the poster decide whether he wishes
to use the "reply to author" function or the "reply to list" function of
his MUA. The author of a message knows better than anyone else where it
should be sent.
reply_to will cause a Reply-To header to be generated, with the specified
mailbox as the contents of the header, as is documented.
Since unexpected Reply-To headers can cause unexpected behaviour at the
mail client, this can cause unexpected behaviour on your mailing list,
ranging from private responses (from the embarassing to the inflamatory)
being sent to your list, to loops caused by autoresponder programs sending
their replies to the Reply-To address (your mailing list). Use reply_to at
your own risk.
