cc:Mail mailstorm should be fixed

You probably just saw a bunch of mail like
Subject: cc:Mail UUCPLINK 2.0 Undeliverable Message

If you ever have a choice of email systems, stay away from cc:Mail.
It doesn't follow the Internet email standards, which caused it to get
into a fight with our list server, and they were sending messages back
and forth to each other, with us as spectators....

We may get a few more messages like that, but they should stop soon.

To avoid this problem in the future, I changed the configuration so that
when you reply to a message it will go to the author by default, rather
than the list itself via a Reply-To: header.
But now we won't be able to monitor Lubbie's private mail.... :-)

Don't worry if this makes no sense - and keep up the conversation!
