Thanks Oliver.  I will read the link.  Makes total sense to me now.  It just
isn't the norm so it sort of threw me off guard.  I subscribe to many lists
and this is the only one using this method so it takes a little getting used
to.  It also makes filtering into different mailboxes a little more difficult
since the list name isn't always in the email.  But I am all for following rfc
standards.  It would be nice if everyone took rfc seriously.
