Hi Charles - got your name now from replying!

It must be a Thunderbird thing, then. Maybe there's a setting - will look some more.

I see names in Gmail...for most posters anyway. For instance I do see
"David Gibbs via MIDRANGE-L" and "Vernon Hamberg via MIDRANGE-L" in this

But the for the OP in the HMC Swap thread all I see is "via MIDRANGE-L"

David - Had to start a reply in order to see who sent the post - sender
didn't put in his name, which is fine, of course.

Viewing source, I saw the sender's name in the From: - but viewing all
headers in Thunderbird (View option), it shows From: as Midrange something.

Good luck, man, hope you find a way around this.

a list poster?

It will definitely be more difficult to determine the OP's email address,
unless it's specifically stated in the email.

Yahoo & AOL are to blame here. They decided that the credo of 'first do
no harm' doesn't apply to them. Their policy change not only effected
their own users but the blow back effected the rest of the internet also.

There are other enhancements in the latest release of the mailing list
software that I need to play with that might help in this regard. I'm
going to be setting up a test system to experiment with it this weekend.
