      everyday and look forward to the slavic content where i sometimes find new
      gems of information which i had not yet discovered. Thanks for your good

        Hello!

        I have little problem with your system, but think it
        can be done more easily. All I did on my household's
        email list is conceal the addresses of members. Now I
        get a lot of email addressed to Adlersburg@...., but
        no one else gets them -- besides, I can use all that
        money from that guy in Nigeria to buy the Viagra
        they're offering.

        ... Well, the List is set up to do that already. The only addresses members can see are within sent messages. For example, a spammer can t look in message

          Well, the List is set up to do that already. The only addresses members
          can see are within sent messages. For example, a spammer can't look in
          message archives to find email addresses. The problem is that once you are
          a member, any new message you receive will contain the address of the
          sender. There is one otherYahooGroups option that I am aware of, but it is
          really restrictive, as you can see below:

          "(You can ) allow members to hide their email address from the group. Your
          group will not be able to use the Polls feature. Members who hide their
          email address will not be able to post messages via email. Once you have
          selected this option, you may not change it later."

          The above option is not viable for this group. If you are thinking of
          another option, please let me know, I might be totally misunderstanding the
          situatuation.

          Pardon th etyping, I have a cat whon thinks she's a baby thqt needs to be
          held whenever I am in a stationary position.
