I this is truly a feature part of "remove indentation rather than
character part of it", and I'm not sure it should be fixed at all.
Perhaps it would be OK to delete the *character* the cursor is *inside*
the indentation level and delete the indentation if at the end of an
indentation level. [1]

hum… I don"t really got the point here: for me on a mailing list, the
"messages" are simple e-mails: just respond to them as you might do with
any other mail. your mail client should correctly send the message to
the mailing list as the Reply-To: mail header says.


1. here with "character" I mean one of the character(s) that creates the
indentation level;
with "inside", I mean "not at a bound";
and with "indentation level" I mean the 2 spaces with a 2 space
indentation: a line starting with 4 space have 2 level of indentation
