      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 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.
