OTOH, Gmail is also a "wonky email-client" due to its Reply-To setting
- it seems to explicitly set replies to go to the original author,
which breaks the normal "replies go to the list" behaviour since the
list doesn't override a Reply-To header if present.
I like Gmail for its threading, which is why I use it on CONLANG, but
I think that if many subscribers used Gmail, it would be a pain since
I would constantly have to check the "To:" address on replies.
Just my two fepni, in case someone thinks that Gmail Can Do No Wrong.
