Is indyguide at gmail.com a list member?

If this is a default Mailman installation in this respect, a post is
considered to be from a member if any of the From:, Sender: or
Reply-To: headers contains a member address or the envelope sender is
a member. The above doesn't show the envelope sender (aka Unix From)
address and the Sender: has been munged by the list. You can see the
original values of these by looking at the message in the
archives/private/uccsc.mbox/uccsc.mbox file.
