I'm having a similar problem. I believe, the envelope thing
might be the reason why I always have to approve messages
to python-de at starship.python.net which were redirected form
starship.skyport.net . Is it possible that there is some relay
in the way which puts another envelope around the message?
I'll give it a try.
