For some strange reason, this message from you has Mail-Follow-up-To
Sean Davis and pgsql-novice.  I believe your previous one was the same.

There are several options that deal with this.  There's the "subscribe"
and "lists" directive, both are somewhat similar but there's a subtle
difference I don't recall just now.  I have a "subscribe" directive in
my ~/.muttrc listing all the lists to which I am subscribed.

There are also options "followup_to", "ignore_list_reply_to", and
"reply_to" which all deal with how mutt sends mail and most affect how
it handles replies to messages from lists.  I don't have any of these in
my .muttrc
