Hopefully, you mean list.config rather than list.conf.

I would accent this more like [$LIST] including the square braces, but
either way, the name of the list should be expanded into your resent
messages. You are using /path-to/majordomo/wrapper resend in your aliases
for the list, right?

If you are forcing all replies to come back to the list address/alias, this
should be set to the actual name of the list, without the @domain.com.
The domain will be added by the resend_host = setting. If resend_host =
is blank, the reply_to = can be the fully qualified email address of the list.
NOTE: If you are not using the resend script in your alias for the list,
none of what you put here matters, because it will not be used anyway.
