Or at the least something that says if a specifically banned address is 
in the From field, then don't allow it. That might be simpler to 
impliment, and is more likely to always be the right thing to do.

I've done this. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll report back if that 
doesn't solve the problem but it seems like it should. It occurs to me 
that this is site-wide, however. Is that right? I have a half dozen 
lists so now does this apply to all of them? They are all small and it's 
probably OK, but I should know.
