	OK, I've found out a little bit more about the exploit.  The
	message is sent with an envelope-from (I think thats the right
	term) of an actual list subscriber, one who has permission to
	post to the list, but the From: header is one of these made-up
	official addresss:

	From my mail server's logs (subscriber's address mangled):

2004-03-11 16:31:44 1B1T5z-0009zY-00 <= SUBSCRIBER at DOMAIN.COM H=(srr2) [] P=smtp S=17730 id=pbecvykwgcgqjemyxjx at Etree.org from <SUBSCRIBER at DOMAIN.COM> for Announce at etree.org

	From mailman's "post" log:

Mar 11 16:32:20 2004 (98296) post to announce from management at etree.org, size=2189, message-id=<pbecvykwgcgqjemyxjx at Etree.org>, success

	Any suggestions on how to catch this forgery?
