Umm, no.  That's NOT the case that it should ONLY reply to the from
header.  It IS the case that in the absence of a reply-to header it uses
the from header, but where the reply-to header exists it should ONLY
reply to the reply-to header address(es).  Do more reading about how
e-mail works...

The reply-to header is an overriding instruction.

In general, you press reply to reply to a message, and your mail client
does what it's supposed to do (as I just outlined, above).  A reply-all
feature is a special function for replying in an usual manner (one that
the message you're replying to hasn't been preset for).  Such as
ignoring the reply-to override.

[[email protected] ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
