Hello all,

I googled for a good hour or two and didn't find any help on this.  I have
 set up mailman 2.0.13 on a Debian 3.0 box.   Three lists, all of which have
 the setting"Show member addrs so they're not directly recognizable as email
 addrs? set to yes:

 # Setting this option causes member email addresses to be transformed
 # when they are presented on list web pages (both in text and as links),
 # so they're not trivially recognizable as email addresses.  The
 # intention is to to prevent the addresses from being snarfed up by
 # automated web scanners for use by spammers.
 # legal values are:
 #    0 = "No"
 #    1 = "Yes"
 obscure_addresses = 1

Dispite this, the archives still show the full addresses.

Has anyone seen this or know how to fix this?
