This email will send to Jim and Owen, plus the list,
which will send it to Jim and Owen AGAIN
So Jim and Owen will get this message TWICE, have to filter

Having the list set reply-to: to the list reduces this to
only one email each. It also ensures that the LIST
is receiving mail.
Count this as my vote to CHANGE THE LIST AND SET REPLY-TO:
