That's according to the review I've got here and also from several Aquarius
based websites. Maybe they fixed it, but I doubt that they'd have had time
in the 3 months they were selling it :)

Nothing to do with me I don't think - I'm on bog-standard outlook 2000 here
and haven't changed settings for years. It started happening when Jay
upgraded the mailman software on the server and the reply addresses became
things like 'cctalk-bounces' and the like. None of the other lists I'm part
of do that......
