I am using Eudora, and it does the same. It depends on the list server I 
guess, since with some email lists I have to change the email address to 
the whole list, otherwise it will be send to the sender only, on yet 
another allows me to send it to both sender and list if I use "reply to 
all". The only thing which changes here, if I do that, is that the sender 
is twice the list, but at least the message says now "Joshua Margolis wrote:".

The advice is: Open the whole message and look for:
>Subject: Re: Sorry
>From: "Joshua Margolis" <jmargoli at nimbus.ocis.temple.edu>

Select and copy the address of the sender behind From:
In this case "Joshua Margolis" <jmargoli at nimbus.ocis.temple.edu>
Paste in the "To" field, while erasing the <korean-studies at mailbase.ac.uk>
be sure it's not in the CC field or even BCC field, and then you will have 
no problems anymore.
