Tim, I don't know why it's doing that.  I'm sending from 
tim@fourstonesExpressions.com... but it comes out on the list with the  
invalid address...  Lemme do some more investigation... but it's 
probably my stinkin host... forever screwing me up.

Certainly a training class would have helped me get my head around the 
training side of things.  It's not really a trivial abstraction...

Ok, I'll take a crack at the training class, then... got some ideas, 
but could use a few suggestions on some remembering stuff... All we 
can really ever count on having is a few basic headers and the message 
body.  Somehow from whatever we have, we need to create a key that 
will be used to find a saved message.  I could hash the entire 
message, or use a checksum... ideas?
