If they're using their work e-mail address like Konstantin says they'll
get the reply there.  Probably any response from them will be some top
posted thing with HTML but this happens often enough currently - people
often use git send-email or something to send but continue using a mail
setup that's not really what's expected for kernel work.  Usually it's
not the end of the world even if people get a bit grumpy at them.
