Someone kindly forwarded me the announcement that this was going to
happen.  I looked through my list database and I had not received it
directly!  I have not attached it as I am sure most of you will have
seen it.

The new list server does seem to put "Sender:" in the header of some
messages, but I am definitely getting stuff without it.  As I said these
messages seem to have custom aliases in the "CC:" field.  I have
modified my rules to suit the new list software and will keep monitoring
the stray ones for a suitable pattern.

Thanks for the help.
