"reply to all" is the correct thing in most mail programs.  It should
litterally do the same thing as "reply" and adding the mailing list
back as CC; the only difference between "reply" and "reply to all"
should be that "reply to all" auto-populates the CC field.  Apparently
that's not the way Sylpheed does it, I would consider that a bug.

I might also consider it a bug that it is using the `X-Mailer:` header
to identify itself instead of `User-Agent:`.
