Another proof that reply-to munging is evil :-)

It's usually a good thing to post this to the list owner:
posting here just helps creating another message for his moronic mail
server to bounce back to the list.
That said, this is all happening because this list is (mis)configured to
munge reply to and try to force all replies to the list.
If it didn't have reply-to munging, this loop would have never happened

Everyone who did was obviously asleep when you posted, but they
apparently fixed it when they got to work this morning :-)

I have done so, I hope you have too.
At the same time, tell them to burn their Novell mail server and replace
it with something that never answers
1) a message from a list (Precedence: bulk/list)
2) to a reply-to or even a from, it should send the answer to the
envelope from if at all possible

1) do not enable reply-to munging on your lists and the problem will go
2) give an incentive for people with the broken mail gateways to fix
3) No, you can't really filter broken autoresponder messages
