1.11.2 Honoring an MFT post

When you followup to a post on a mailing list, and the post has a MFT header, Gnus' action will depend on the value of the variable message-use-mail-followup-to. This variable can be one of:

use
Always honor MFTs. The To: and Cc: headers in your followup will be derived from the MFT header of the original post. This is the default.

nil
Always dishonor MFTs (just ignore the darned thing)

ask
Gnus will prompt you for an action.

It is considered good netiquette to honor MFT, as it is assumed the fellow who posted a message knows where the followups need to go better than you do.
