Indeed, there is a Mail-Reply-To header with only one address. But who does
set this header this way and how can the user avoid that? Apparently it does
not match the user's intention.

On another issue: Checking the source of the relevant message in terms of
Mail-Reply-To, I'm all of a sudden seeing this quite strange looking first
line of the References header:

What the hell is this...?
