[PLUG] Thunderbird email client ignores Reply-To field...

Thunderbird users who post to PLUG,

I just noticed that some of my replies to this list never got here.

The reason is that a recent upgrade of my Thunderbird email
client started ignoring Reply-To fields in emails from mailing
lists like PLUG.  So replies go only to the From field (the original
poster), not the Reply-To field (the PLUG list).

This was an intentional change by the Thunderbird developers.
I'm not sure why, and I've asked them to change it back.  See
details here:

If you're using Thunderbird, the easiest way to fix this is:
    - Thunderbird | Preferences | Advanced | General | Config Editor:
      - "mail.override_list_reply_to" = "false" (was "true")
