The solution to this religious argument for "more qualified" subscribers
like what everyone here should be is for the list to leave reply-to
alone and leave it up to subscribers to do this:

:0 fHw
* ^List-Id:.*A user list for the exim MTA
| formail -i "Reply-To: exim-users@???"

which I am sure is easily translatable for those HEATHEN DEVIL
WORSHIPPERS who don't worship at the church of procmail.
