	I think Hilton has already covered this.  It does make a 
difference, because otherwise you'd have the wrong messages going to 
the wrong mailing lists.

	You also have to have your ISP give you some sort of way of 
distinguishing between the various different addresses that get 
delivered to your account.  Otherwise, all those messages are going 
to come in and look like they are delivered to you, and you won't 
know what to do with them.

	I think this issue is pretty well explained in the fetchmail documentation.
