When I did that on my Thunderbird (v2.0.0.4 for Linux) here, I got a new 
message, with the message from the list attached to it, ready for 
forwarding to any address I decide to type into the To file. IOW - NO 
address whatsoever from the original email. On the Message menu, Ctrl-L 
is the keystroke for "Forward".

Great if I wanted to forward the email to someone else. Worthless if I 
want to reply to the list OR the original sender.
