I'm afraid that's just KMail. Mozilla and Outlook can only reply to the 
sender, or to everybody on the Cc: list.

I think all mailers should do something like that! (And a few other 
things, like putting all responses in the same folder as the incoming 
mail, and alerting me specifically to answers to a mail that I sent. 
These things worked on a crummy DOS mailbox mailer, but none of the 
current megabyte-sized mailers seem to be able to do such things...)
