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 ;-)
