I use Win 95. I use MS Exchange 4.0.410.59. I get the Techwriter's
Mailing list email address in my From address, not the original poster's
address. Maybe it is the way our mail server is configured that strips
out the original sender's email address. I'm sorry if my
misunderstanding inflamed you. I didn't mean to impugn your experience;
I was merely stating my own experience.

Regardless of whether it is my mail reader or my mail server, however,
the original poster's email address is stripped out. I am obviously not
the only one to whom this happens. Michael Collier's original plea was
not unreasonable. In fact, I made the same plea about 3 or 4 months ago;
the response at that time was pretty much the same as it is now.
