well, at one level, I think what he's doing is wrong, but we won't 
get into that philosopical range war. But the basic issue is that he 
*isn't* a member of the list, since the From address isn't subscribed.

Two solutions.

1) he subscribes both addresses to the list, and sets "nomail" flag 
to the one in his from address. he can do that without admin 
intervention, so that's what I usually recommend.

2) set his address as not needing admin overview -- that's an option 
on the privacy page of the admin page. that way, you're saying "this 
guy is okay" and it won't be held. which works as long as he really 
is okay, but that's an admin issue.. (grin)
