I'm just guessing here, but I assume it checks the message headers for 
the (RFC-defined?) ^List-.* lines, and uses the "List-Post:" line to 
decide which e-mail address is the one to send to.

For added weirdness, KMail has a "Reply to List" feature which gets the 
right address from the List-Post: line and automatically adds the From: 
line of the original sender to the To: line of the outgoing message.  
There's probably a preference somewhere to turn that off....

   "Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity
   is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth.
