Right, thanks. I was misremembering from when I looked at this last month.

Isn't it also an issue that the message doesn't say who it's from,
potentially, or how to contact the sender? My biggest list has a lot of job
postings, conference announcements, etc.--things where you don't
necessarily mention yourself in what you send in (even if you may include
other contact info). In that case won't we risk confusing all the readers
of the list? It'll look like the list itself (or rather its sponsoring
organization) is promoting the job announcement.

Or, I would guess on any list, someone will often say "contact me for more
info" with the assumption that their email address is up above. Am I
misunderstanding Munge From?

Thanks, that's really good to know.
