It might be another good idea to notify people who may want to subscribe
to this list that probably they'll need to change email clients in order
to accommodate how this list is set up. This information would give
them warning that they may have to download and probably will have to
configure an email client especially for this list. We could also point
them to this thread to show them how all this makes sense.

And we should point them to the place in the the relevant RFCs where it
explains this.

If someone is using Windows and is considering using suse and wants to
use this list to find out about suse, which email client should we tell
them to use... one that runs on Windows?

list. How is this done? Are changes to the source code required?

This is correct-- I mean, that T-bird isn't suse-linux-e@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
