Yes, you can combine the two, but it may make more sense, i.e. be more

Note the change from :0 B to :0 BH.
Many thanks. You've been very helpful.
PS Please respect my setting of the Mail-followup-to: header and keep
the discussion on the list. Thanks.
I'm sorry that you got a private copy.

My mailer (Sylpheed) doesn't seem to recognise the header that you are
relying on. Its "reply to mailing list" option just sends it to you.
I'm not sure one can expect people to search through the headers of
each message they receive.
From: "N.J. Mann" <njm(_at_)njm(_dot_)f2s(_dot_)com>
To: R Kimber <rkimber(_at_)ntlworld(_dot_)com>
I've always thought that it is better to send or reply to the list in
the first instance, and Cc (if you want to) to the individual and not
the list. That way, the problem is less likely to arise because their
replies will likely go to the list, at least with programs like
Sylpheed, and users like me :-)
