What I would like to see is something like what
you applied in the
mail list archives, overwriting of private mail addresses with
xxxxxxxxxx, which is excellent. If that would be possible for mails
that list server sends to subscribers, than is solved the second
problem of protecting the subscribers.
Are you talking about replacing the From: header?
Short answer: PLEASE do NOT do that! Sometimes there are good reasons to
reply privately, this would be impossible then.
Don't worry, Henne is the boss and he already answered.
I can talk as much as I want, nothing happens.
The long answer would be a large spam-protection vs.
usability text, but
currently I don't have the time to write this.
No need. I agree.
The list server configuration is a balance, between opposite
requirements defined by privacy and functionality, that the most people
feel as comfortable.
Therefore I'll give you
a short summary only: the best (and only) way not to receive spam is
not to have a mail address *g*
This is the matter of balance too :-)
PS: If you really think the opensuse lists cause too much spam for you
(I doubt that's the case), use your "regular" mail address for
receiving the list and a nomail subscription with a (short-living)
freemail account you never read (or even a /dev/null address) for
The other already applied that. That is why I got few mail server
responses about undeliverable emails, when I forgot to remove private
address from header.
