It would happen once, the first time you post to any l.d.o mailinglist with a unknown email-address,
never again. It would never happen, if you were subscribed (with any email-address that you might be
subscribed with) and it should take care of delimiters.

That would hit how many people, how often.

I really would like to know, where the problem is there ?
