[Q:] Has Mail Delivery Changed? Please Stop.

Discussions about mail delivery and filtering methods are outside the
scope of this mailing list.

I would appreciate it if people would let this thread die.

In case it was lost in the noise, the "Sender: " field is back.
If you were filtering on it before you can now filter on this again.
The name of the mailing list is now cygwin@sourceware.cygnus.com .
