GB> What BA's Use the 2625w Tube?

I have a problem with the lists where the from line contains the name
of the individual message author rather than the name of the group.
The spam filter of my ISP occasionally throws valid messages into
the junk folder.  If the from line is the group name, then marking that
name as acceptable only has to happen once.  With the author's
name on the from line, I have to continue to add names to the acceptable
list, until eventually, I guess, I'll have every group member on the list.

I don't try to remember which lists are which method - I hit reply, and
check the header of the new message to see if it's going to the author or
list.  If not my intended destination, I go back, hit reply all, and delete
either the group or the author from the to line.
