This issue of the Reply-To: setting seems to be a recurring issue.  So
I'm attempting a possible solution.  It may take a bit of time to get it
working 100% but I've made a start.  I did something similar for another
list in the days of Majordomo but I forget exactly what I did :-).

I've created a second list sclugr at sclug.org.uk this list is subscribed
to sclug at sclug.org.uk.

If you subscribe to sclugr at sclug.org.uk then the messages you receive
will have the Reply-To: set to sclug at sclug.org.uk.

So if your happy with the way the list is at the moment you don't need
to do anything and nothing will change for you.

If you want Reply-To: set then there are a couple of things to do:-

1) You need to be subscribed to both lists. 
	a) Subscribe to sclug at sclug.org.uk but turn off delivery from
		 that list.  (This enables you to post to the list.)
        b) Subscribe to sclug at sclug.org.uk to receive the message.

Note: I wouldn't actually turn of the original list till your sure the
new list is working.

2) sclugr at sclug.org.uk is an open list and so you might get spam on that

The Web interface to the new list is via


Till I suss out how to move it to sclug.org.uk
