Hi Loopers

I am regularly unsubscribed by the from the list because I bounce mails 
I believe to be spam. I use a prog called Mailwasher.  I receive maybe 100
spam messages a day and I check them at the server to accept or bounce.

Usually I can tell which are LD posts because it says so in the TO column.
However when there is a post where LD is in the CC or one of a list of
recipients then it displays an unrecognisable e-mail addy and I bounce it
believing it to be someone wanting to enlarge my breasts or something :).

I scan my mails carefully before deleting but the volume of traffic, the
variety of subject headers and number of subscribers here means that posts
can and do get deleted in error.  I was unsubscribed again tonight when I
bounced the post from Jeff Lomas with the Subject of 'Accidental 
tomorrow' where LD was part of a list of addressees.  Mailwasher showed the
first addressee only and I bounced it. I don't want to have to open every
mail to check obviously.

Ok so I know this is a limitation of Mailwasher but is anyone else having
this difficulty.  All of the other fora I participate in to varying degrees
have some sort of a header to identify [Loopers-delight] kind of thing.  I
understand that this isn't a yahoo group and different approaches apply.

Anyone have a workaround or a best way?

I'm still ruminating on the percussionist loopers thread, thanks to all for
the replies, I'll post again tomorrow.  Love the forum guys.  Cheers.
Thanks Kim
