office-comment message

Subject: Re: [office-comment] Suggested addition: Binder-like file format

The mails from the mailing list server have a special header:
  List-Post: <mailto:office-comment@lists.oasis-open.org>

I use two mail clients: KMail and Thunderbird. In both I get the option to 
reply to the mailing list. In KMail, this has the shortcut L, in Thunderbird 
it is Ctrl+Shift+L.

Also, in both mail client simply replying on the office-comment@ mails sends 
mail to the mailing list only, despite that not being the From: address. So, 
not all mail clients are equally clever about mailing list mails.
