I wish I could do that: my current mailman setup doesn't put the user's
address in the "To:" address and since those wonderful AOL reports only
include the original message, I can't tell from who it is coming!! A few
of them were those monthly reminders, so I could get the email addr from
there, but most of them were regular list and digest posts :(
So my current situation is that my ISP is risking to get blacklisted and
I can't do anything about it except for shutting down the lists or
remove & block all AOL users :(
