Unfortunately, my VAX mail system uses the first From: field above for
replies, not the Reply-To: field. So if I want to reply to a message, I
basically have to forward or send it (with my comments) as a separate
message, which forces me to re-type the subject headers in.

When the list first started up, this wasn't the case; the first header was
"sonic", not "owner-sonic", but it later changed. Any reason why it can't
be changed back for those of us with less than state-of-the art mail
