Most of the lists I am on do not munge the reply-to header, and will 
generally point you to http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html if 
you suggest setting reply-to list.

In this case, your problem is probably that you are not using the 
newsgroup directly, but rather through the mail gateway.  Newsgroups 
have distinct followup and reply operations (even if Thunderbird 
confuses them).
