My original report on this was confused by the fact that behaviour 
changed with the 1.0rc2 -> 1.0rc3 upgrade, but my other fiddling 
concealed this....

Currently, if you are using an MTA which does not add Sender: header 
fields gratuitously - and strangely enough the exim mailing list users 
tend to use exim which is in this catagory - then the code handling 
deriving the sender address louses up totally.  It is not dropping back 
to the From: or envelope sender fields, and so 80% of my users are 
currently having their postings moderated.

There is still also the problem that unqualified senders are accepted - 
they should be ignored.
