    George, you wrote:
    "All such postings appear in my inbox as though they are from
    , and their sender can only be identified by searching
    within the message. But , if this way of sending becomes popular, that's
    going to make using "find" to search out an email in the inbox much more
    difficult. If I am searching out a particular posting from the past, one of
    the first tests is to identify its sender, who I can usually remember, and
    specify his email address in the "from" column. Is there any way in which a
    sender from the archive can have his email address, encoded in any way
    that's thought fit, included in the "from" part of the header?"
    I agree completely that this would be nice, and I will give it some thought (I 
    don't want to get into technical details on the list). My feeling is that 
    this non-member posting feature will be used by people who have a "flyby" 
    interest in the topic. If they get hooked, they will join soon enough. I see 
    it as a feature that leads people to membership rather than a replacement for 
    membership. Let's see how it evolves...
    As for searching for author, etc., in addition to a more intuitive "joining" 
    function, I plan to add/restore functionality that associates members' emails 
    with their "real" names (or such portions of their real names that they're 
    comfortable using, e.g. first name, last initial).
