I don't have a Reply-To at all - I have Return-Paths pointing to 
the sender and to the list and a Mail-Followup-To pointing to 
the list. I imagine kmail is either picking up the From field or 
the top-most Return-Path with a plain "reply".

Apparently I need to set up a separate folder to accomplish that 
- I'd forgotten that folder config had that option.

Yep - I added 'reply to list" to the toolbar. Now I just have to 
remember to use it (or else setup up the folder and filter msgs 
from the list to it). 'reply to list' behaves correctly for 
non-list msgs, so maybe I'll just use that.
