I should have posted this before.

Here's my procmail rule, fwiw:

* ^Sender: cygwin-announce-owner-HAT-cygwin.*


        SUBJECT=`/usr/bin/formail -xSubject:`
        FROM0=`/usr/bin/formail -X'From '`
        FROM1=`/usr/bin/formail -X'From:'`

        |formail -I '' \
                 -I"$FROM0" \
                 -I"$FROM1" \
                 -I'To: cygwin-HAT-cygwin-PERIOD-com' \
                 -I"Subject: [ANNOUNCEMENT]$SUBJECT" \
                 -I'Reply-To: cygwin-HAT-cygwin-PERIOD-com'


If yours looks similar to this, it should be ok.  If you got it right
in one try, you're a better man than I.  :-)

Thanks for doing this.  Could I get a gold star over here?
