You could say that. The last time I pruned dupes from my active css-d

What about PGP/MIME signed messages? I know it breaks a bit in Outlook,
but it's not our fault Microsoft can't get a 7 year old standard right
Hm, where have I seen that before...

Per-user? I don't want Cc'd replies (hence my Mail-Followup-To header),
but definately want list replies, since anything else will screw up my

Ah, my pet hate MLM -- http://www.jwz.org/doc/mailman.html
Add to that the stupid monthly plaintext password reminder (don't
suppose that's optional yet?) to some random mailing list name (I get

lame. *cough* Maybe *cough* :)

Hm, interesting; how does that work? Send mail to a different address?
Set some sort of subject prefix? I'm guessing it's somewhat like nested
lists, only with a more DAG-like structure rather than a tree. I'll be
interested to see how this affects the List-Id header, since I filter on
Thanks, BTW. I know how annoying setting up MLM's can be :)
