So we can tag this as [Resolved]?

BTW: I notice that your post via gmane.org has a mangled (encryption
obfuscated) email address:

Note: separated at the '@' so that it shows the entire address.

However I also post/browse via gmane.org and my email address is not
mangled (see my headers on this message). So I'm wondering why as the
gmane.org server doesn't have 'Encode/encrypt' set.

Are you posting via the web interface or nntp?
