This sounds like great software, and the owner-of-your-domain idea is a good
one too. That's one reason why I went ahead and got the memekitchen domain
and set up a "groups" email account, so that I can switch it whenever.
Problem is that I was using my work address (not this one) for a long time
on this list, and there are 2 years or so of records sitting at
info-arch.org that are available to anyone who wants to read them, and many
of us were daft enough to actually not only post to the list from our
somewhat permanenet work or main-contact addresses, but we also had them
plainly visible in our signatures at the end of each post.
So my work address (myfirstinitialandlastname_at_symetri.com), which is on all
of my expensive biz cards and stationery and is used by hundreds of client
contacts, is out there for any spam spider to pluck at will.
This was a dumb thing for me to do 2 years ago...I had posted with the
assumption that it was a private list and not publicly accessed in an open
archive; but if there's a way to clear it up for me and others now, it'd be
I'm not whining, really! I just put the call out because I didn't know who
else was having to deal with this problem, and who might be able to rectify
it? (meaning, somehow change the archive or protect it so that email address
harvesters can't get to them).
