Ironically, or perhaps appropriately, I fumbled the addressing of this reply.

One is to change the settings so while you continue to add the reply
to list header, you do not strip it out if present. Then the quizzer
can add the reply to header and the list will leave that, but
otherwise replies go to the list ... unless someone has their email
program setup to add the reply to header to their mail, then replies
to their messages will not automatically go to the list.

This won't work in this context. The list address will just be added to the posters reply to and reply will go to both addresses.

A second solution is to have the quizzer add a token like [Quiz] to
these messages, and set the list to automatically hold all messages
with this token. You then accept the quiz, but reject the improperly
sent replies. You could just filter on Re:.*\[Quiz\] to avoid holding
the Quiz up, but this assumes that everyone who messes up where to
send the replies has their program properly set up to add the Re:

Good idea.

    Hello there.
    I own a few lists, and we are having bouncing issues. How do I globally
    unbounce people, without going in and individually unboun cing them?
    thanks.

    The other idea I had was to create a 2nd mailing list with the exact same
    members and changing the reply for the 2nd list to go to the poster. That
    makes it easy for the poster... Just wish I could automatically sync to the
    two lists without having to manually add/remove people to the 2nd "mirrored"
    list...

    I still think the nicest idea would be the "listname at domain.com" and allow
    adding a "-replytome" tag...for example: "listname-replytome at domain.com".
    Simple, don't have to manage multiple lists and has the desired effect.
    There could be a checkbox in the config that allows the list admin to
    allow/disallow the "-replytome" tag...

    Anyway, thanks for all the various ideas. I appreciate everyone's
    suggestions!

    Don't add members, add lists.

    Ie, the only member of the "reply to me" list is the discussion/
    announcments list. I don't think "Poster" is appropriate here; you
    should set the reply-to explicitly to the quizmaster's address. If
    you have multiple quizmasters, you can have a separate owner password
    for that list only, and give it to the quizmasters so that they can
    reset the reply-to to their own address immediately before posting.

    There may be additional configuration you want to do, to make it look
    as though the quiz list is the same as the original, or maybe you
    don't.
