I know this has already been settled but I did have a question regarding the

sender and it never works because the messages sent on listservs are sent
"on behalf of".  Using the prefix for the listserv has worked best for me to
solve this problem but was wondering if I was doing something wrong the
other way that it would not work.

I personally prefer no list specific prefix in the subject, for me it's
really annoying. If someone gets lots of spam, he should think about a

There are many ways on the net to do that, for example have a look at

I think filtering listmails into subfolders isn't too much to expect of
someone. Filtering for the string "Reply-To: loadstone at loadstone-gps.com"
in mailheader is a proper way.

just my 2 cent,

Because of the bad readability of the text.
