Thanks for pointing it out. I now bounced the reply to him.

Have you informed him that he didn't receive any of the replies?...

Sorry, but no. The list-reply feature of Mutt is there to be used, and
I'm going to use it.

I guess we can't expecty everyone sending a message to a list he is not
subscribed to, to know about the mail-followup-to: header, and set it
accordingly, so a good mail client will DTRT automatically. But we
certainly can expect people to mention somewhere in the mail that they
are not subscribed, so others know they need to Cc: them.
