I always do for mailing lists. The subscription address will filter out
everything not coming from the list (because I did get way too much SPAM
to my subscription addresses). For personal replies, I have a special
address that gets rotated every 3 months so the SPAM level is bearable.
That's the address in the Reply-To header and there's absolutely no need
to add it to every mail body - it's already there in the headers and
it's exactly what the header is designed for.
So just because _you_ don't use it, it doesn't mean _everybody_ doesn't.
OK, I'll shut up now. :)
