Hi Mark,

I actually have a question about this... Normally, I create an archive  
of all the mailing lists that I run, if I were to add a header that  
said Approved: <My super Hard password> would that get archived? I'll  
be honest, I haven't taken the time to read through the possibilities,  
but thought I would ask you real quick :)

Off to google and the docs to see what I can figure out!
