So, In Thunderbird, i have two options:

1. Reply
2. Reply List

the first addresses BOTH the list and Hans directly
the second addresses ONLY  the List

this works because Mailman is setting List-XXXX in the headers.

i'll check to see how other email apps handle. i'll also activate an old
yahoo account i have to monitor delivery.

header snippets:

From: Hans G Ehrbar via Marxism <marxism at lists.csbs.utah.edu>
Sender: Marxism <marxism-bounces at lists.csbs.utah.edu>
Errors-to: marxism-bounces at lists.csbs.utah.edu
Reply-to: Hans G Ehrbar <-- xmission address -->,
 Activists and scholars in Marxist tradition <marxism at lists.csbs.utah.edu>

interesting spam header:

X-Spam-Checker-Version: SpamAssassin 3.3.2 (2011-06-06) on sa04.xmission.com
X-Spam-Report: * -1.0 ALL_TRUSTED Passed through trusted hosts only via SMTP	*
