Note that lists, including this one, leave the poster's address in 
the From: header. That's probably the right thing to do but some 
people argue about it and some mail clients have problems 
automatically replying to the list.

But list members are not very careful about unsubscribing or changing 
email servers.

The result is that addresses that once worked begin to fail and the 
postmaster complains to the From: address without looking at the 
List-id: or Reply-To: headers and doing something intelligent.

Most lists send out probes once a month or so and quarantine list 
members who bounce the probes.
