Ah, sorry, Sourceforge doesn't have this feature. Maybe they run an
older version of Mailman. With other lists I'm on, this option is
called "Avoid duplicate copies of messages?" and the explanation text
is: "When you are listed explicitly in the To: or Cc: headers of a
list message, you can opt to not receive another copy from the mailing
list. Select Yes to avoid receiving copies from the mailing list;
select No to receive copies.
If the list has member personalized messages enabled, and you elect to
receive copies, every copy will have a X-Mailman-Copy: yes header
added to it."

No, Thunderbird doesn't have it, AFAIK. But there are many bugreports
or featue requests open, like:
I'm not sure, if current versions of Mutt evaluate the headers,
normally you add lists, you are subscribed to, into the config file.
However at least the Webmailer "Horde" seems to evaluate the
List-header automatically. Horde has a button called "Reply to list"
which automatically does The Right Thing.
Anyway many mailer like of course Outlook miss features for proper
list handling. That's why some lists do in fact mess with the
Reply-To. However most list for "technically inclined people" in my
experience tend to prefer to let the reply-to stay as it is, that is,
not change it to a Reply-To-List. That's also, why Sourceforge lists
default to the setting we had so far, I guess.

If you google for the keywords I mentioned you can read about the
issue in all its glory. Of course, the Thunderbird bug discussion also
went off-topic to fight that old fight. ;)
