Re: Base Pack S.R.L.
I checked out the mailing list archives at the website, and sure enough,
email addresses of each and every single person who has ever posted here is
archived along with their posts.
eGroups has a feature where it "mangles" the email addresses of list
in its web-hosted mailing list archives. Any chance of introducing a
feature for the archives for this list?
I guess I've been bothered by this because I have a hotmail account which I
used as the "spam-magnet" and this account that I'm using for this list is
supposedly for communications with people I trust. I could use email
filtering, but spammers now routinely change their fake "from" addresses.
guess I'll have to live with it for now.
:( :( :(
