[Mailman-Users] listname - first letter capitalized

Well, I am thinking more along the lines of cosmetics.  When the person 
receives an email the FROM would say Foobar-list at lists.domain.com versus 
  foobar-list at lists.domain.com.

This is a almost a silly discussion but I expected it to be lower-cased 
since that is that I typed.


The RFCs state that you have to retain case in user addresses, in the 
event that the machine at the other end needs that information.
