Bearing in mind a lot of mailing software ignores the 'from' field and
instead uses the 'reply-to' field instead. Well, OK, for USENET anyway :)

Like I say, this problem only started happening with the last list-upgrade.
I've change nothing before or since. Jay, are you out there?

I have a big enough problem having to run Gatesware on this machine as it
is, never mind letting some shoddily-coded outsider manipulate my settings!
:) If I could be arsed to work out how to install winduhs 2000 manually I
would, just so I could understand what horrors it goes through, though that
would probably shoo me away. I know Dreamweaver has its brickbats but it's
only that and Photoshop that keeps me running this unreliable shite. Oh, and
I've got several years' worth of past museum mails etc that are in Outlook
format so I need Outlook, unless there's an open source app that's happy
with .PST files.......

I just want to know why my posts end up as coming from me AND the list. I'm
not doing it deliberately and I know it happens to others. I'm just so used
to hitting 'reply to all' and deleting the addresses I don't need so stuff
goes straight to the list.
