So while we're on the subject, what is the proper way for an 
auto-responder to tell if this is a mailing list?  We use a procmail 
script that pulls a vacation message from LDAP for our users.

Does the presence of a "Precedence: list" header always denote mailing 
list?  Is this pretty standard?  Also when we reply, I add a "Precedence: 
junk (autoreply)" header.  Is that also standard/correct?
