Hi Christian,

Thank you for sharing your procmail recipe.  Like all good recipes, I 
have taken ideas from it to adapt ~> augment my own.

# cctalk - List-ID
:0 E
* List-Id: .*<>
    :0 Whc: .maildir/.Mail\ Lists.cctalk/procmail.lock
    |/usr/bin/formail -D 4096 .maildir/.Mail\ 
    :0 a:
    .maildir/.Mail\ Lists.cctalk/duplicates.mbox
    CCTALKFROM=`formail -czxReply-To: | cut -f1 -d, | sed -e 's/\"/\\\"/g'`
    :0 fB
    |/usr/bin/formail -fb -i "List-Post: <mailto:cctalk 
<cctalk at>>" -R Reply-To: Old-Reply-To: -i "From: $CCTALKFROM"
    .maildir/.Mail\ Lists.cctalk/

Aside:  You can remove use "-x" to extract the header without the 
(Reply-To:) header.  You can use "-z" to remove the space between the 
(Reply-To:) header and it's value.  Thus eliminating the need for the 
first sed.
