Ah...  thanks for the heads-up!
In our case, the IP and time can lead me to the computer as well.

The ?sender=zzzzzzzz%40utm.edu fragment won't always be there. It is there this time because the moderator followed the link to view all messages from zzzzzzzz at utm.edu before approving the message.
