Yep. I'm using the junkbuster proxy. I'll give them a go with the
mailman site set to be allowed to use cookies. I assume that means

Given that I got two messages from this list, I take it that mailman

one message rather than two. It shouldn't be too hard to implement
this; are there any good reasons not to?
