The primary reason to put something in the "reply-to" box is if you have
some reason for wanting replies to go *elsewhere* than to the "from" address
(say, you're posting from work, but want answers to land at home, or vice

The reason that a lot of folks use the "reply-to" box to simply replicate
what's in the "from" box is cluelessness induced by poor documentation; in
other words, no easy-access explanation of the feature that tells them that
the default setting for "reply-to" really ought to be blank.
