While publishing real names and mailing addresses might be a problem,
publishing mails sent to a list including those is in my eyes something
completely different. (At least I for example never saw a newspaper claim
that for Leserbriefe you need to give written permission to have your name
stated if they are published).

There might be a problem with Received lines, IP addresses, envelope
adressen and other headers in Mails, but I call bullshit any claim that there
is any restriction about having the name and email adress or any other regular
part of the mail itself published as part of a mail explicitly sent to be
published (i.e. sent to a mailing list).

(Doing some collection and giving stats by sender or stuff like that
might be processing of that information needing some permission, but
those data is not processed if it is simply part of the published mail).
