Hi, Avi,

But keep in mind that users are also being conditioned to view vaguely
familiar or unknown names in the From column as being likely spam, thanks to
the creativity of the current crop of spammers.

You'll likely have a different set of list users toss the messages after you
make the change.  The intersection of the two sets probably isn't empty,
