Re: best name for followups?

In email, using reply-to, I can manually redirect a discussion away from 
inappropriate recipients.  What's the difference?

My proposal---using Reply-To to control replies, and a followup field to
control followups---is a _labelled_ change from RFC 822 semantics.

Your proposal---using From to control replies, and Reply-To to control
followups---is an _unlabelled_ change from RFC 822 semantics.

You keep complaining that MUAs don't use From and Reply-To the way you
suggest. That's because they're following RFC 822, section 4.4.4.

Of course, this is only a guess at what your proposal means, since you
consistently refuse to say what you want real MUAs to do with their two
built-in response functions.

Let your users manage their own mailing lists.
