Well it's set up exaclty like that. Again the problem is with
one particular mailing list (mplayer). I want to know what
spam-prevention (or otherwise) tricks that ML is doing that I
can't get the mail out. The Debian lists appear happy to accept
my "broken" setup (as amply demonstrated by this post).
Since I first got connected just three or four years ago, the Net
it seems has become a more and more paraonid place.
