If someone wants to run a mailing list they should use a mailing list management software that's designed for that purpose, instead of trying to shoehorn something out of an ordinary E-mail client.

Totally agreed on that.

The lack of functionality that had been objected against mailing list software is the ability for recipient X to determine if last week's broadcast message had [or should have] been delivered also to recipient Y. In this respect, ordinary mail gives a suboptimal solution, as the "To" headers should match the list of recipients.

What do you mean by "nicely forcing"? Do you have semi-automated procedures, step-by-step instructions, or similar guidance for setting up mailing lists on your server?
