Look in the .config file for the mailing list.
If you leave this blank, the $sender should be in the From box automatically.
(So, the documentation on this seems a little fuzzy as seen below.)
And the list will be in the To box of sender's email,
and the user's email will be in the From box of the recipient's email.:
It is best to leave this reply_to blank, so that you reply to the $sender.
And you may choose to reply to all, which will include the list.
        # reply_to             [word] () <resend,digest>
        # Put a reply-to header with value <value> into the outgoing
        # message. If the token $SENDER is used, then the address of the
        # sender is used as the value of the reply-to header. This is the
        # value of the reply-to header for digest lists.
reply_to            =

In my maillinglist.config for each list, i'd like it so that each person
emailing the message to the list is the person in the from: line on the
email.  Do I accomplish this by making:

reply_to = $SENDER

or something else?
