      Thanks for all the explanations (including several off list) of the 
Mailman end of this; but that was not the problem.  I have done some 
testing and have confirmed a Eudora bug on this.  If the subject line ends 
in a period (.) Eudora trashes the headers, deleting the subject, stripping 
the "real name" out of the from header, and messing with the destination 
header(s).  If I add a white space after the period everything is fine.
      It's scary the weird and unexpected things code can do.
