I am so happy:

    Delivered-To: mailing list
    Delivered-To: moderator for

(first post on the "Document Recovery" thread).

Since someone connected the dots about mailing-list addresses in the headers, and I discovered
that Outlook will filter on SMTP-header text matches, I no longer feel like the ugly duckling
in this world of *nix users.

As a moderator, I tend to grant a responsible sender with an "accept" that covers future posts
as well.  I don't know if that is effective always.  I also don't know that, if it is, future
posts are still identifiable as from a non-subscriber.  I will have to test that.

Unfortunately you are right, it does only match the final delivered-to
header. Blast, I use GMail too. I just assumed it would work. I guess
it serves me right for not checking the results of the filter.

Oh well... still a great tip for those who can use it.
