I am using Gmail and have subscribed to several mailing lists (Mailman based).

Gmail defaults to "reply to person" instead of "reply to list" when I try to reply the mailing list messages.

Is there any way to change this behavior?

It’s either all or nothing, meaning that you can change the default behavior, but it will affect all the emails you receive, not just the ones from your mailing lists.

To change the default behavior, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to SettingsGenaral
  2. Search for Default reply behavior

  3. Set it to Reply all
  4. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page
