We will use the mail address from .forward as that is the file we  
honour for all userid@apache.org addresses.  Now some folks don't  
forward their mail on, they collect it.  But that is ok too.
Folks are most likely to maintain this address as that is ultimately  
the way they get to read their email.  :-)
