If a list is made up of other lists, in other words, main at server.net has 
as members list1 at server.net and list2 at server.net and so forth - and if 
implicit addressing is not allowed in those member lists, then messages 
from an authorized member of main at server.net will generate the Reason: 
Message has implicit destination message.  One way around that is to 
turn off "Must posts have list named in destination (to, cc) field (or 
be among the acceptable alias names, specified below)?" in the Privacy 
options, Recipient filters section.
