Thanks for that. I'm wasn't familiar with customising Thunderbird, and
my other co-moderator uses OE (for his sins). I did manage to follow the
latter link of your mail to set up the header though.
I have a test list, and tried this out. I subscribed a couple of extra
accounts of mine to the list, and set them to No Mail (disabled by
administrator). Sending a mail to the list with the "Urgent: <password>"
header worked for my normal account (this one), but not for the other
accounts. Any ideas as to why? I assume it's the (A) flag?
On a better note, I checked the headers and found that the password
doesn't appear ;-). Don't want my more savvy members checking things out
and discovering what they shouldn't ;-)
