This is something in the mailbox handling that will probably need to be fixed
upstream in mutt, or in how listman does its archives. I don't think we'll
change it here.

Comment 2 Yusuf Goolamabbas 2003-03-20 03:52:51 UTC
Bill, You can consider this a bug against the way archives are setup on
listman.redhat.com, it's false advertising to call it a mbox

That's not an mbox. The From header is not correct.
The email address is not correct has " at " instead "@"

See the bug report filed at 


for details

Assigning to mailman.

Comment 4 Florian La Roche 2004-06-06 09:38:33 UTC
This is a spacial recaution to prevent spam and create more privacy
for people emailing to the list. Can be configured on how this
should be done on a per mailinglist basis in current versions
of mailman.

Closing this, this is not a bug,

Florian La Roche
