The correct posting address is This isn't a
technical list, so suffice it to say bort is the server that sends list
messages to you.

It does. If you look at the header of a list message, you'll see that
the sender's address is in the From: field and the list's address is in
the Reply To: field. Many mail programs will (or can be configured to)
ask you which address you want your reply to go to. Use of a signature
is still a good idea because the sender's address can get mangled by
gateways, etc.
