There's probably 3 mail clients on earth that understand that header 
with zero of them native Winblows mail readers.

Mine is one of the better Winblows mailers and seems to randomly set 
a reply's To: as the sender or the list depending on the phase of the 
moon, the fine structure constant, and the current vital signs 
telemetered from Schrodinger's cat.
