I'm on one of the lists that accepted the message (which is how it came 
to my attention) and I just rechecked the message header and didn't see 
anything resembling that...  would mailman remove it from the header for 
final delivery to the list members?  Regardless, I'll see to getting 
passwords changed, thanks.
