I don't know if you followed this thread.  Others have also confirmed
that when the preference is set in Mailman to reply only
to sender, horde isn't picking up on it.

( Mailman option reply_goes_to_list is set to Poster, which causes Reply-To:
header to be set with poster name )

The default behaviour we see in DIMP with imp5
is reply to sender, which also cc's the list.

We'll need to switch to this to avoid the confusion and problems
until we get two buttons in dimp as per the feature request
put into the bug tracker.
