List ID is not a vey good one. This mailman mailinglist can be identified
very will with: X-BeenThere: firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunatly some email clients claim to be userfriendly and do not have
the ability to use any of these headers anyway. (Outlook Express is one of
these 'capabilities impaired'.)
All email sent to me is bound to the rules described on my homepage.
Don't meddle in the affairs of sysadmins,
for they are subtle and quick to anger.
