I think AOL finally fixed this problem. I have a large number of AOL
subscribers in my lists. Invariably postings made as replies used to
come to the envelope From_ address. But this phenomenon has completely
disappeared, so I assume that AOL has learnt how to deal with the
Some compuserve and delphi users are still sending mail to the From_
address, so I assume some of the front ends they use must do weird stuff.
At least, AOL listmaster/s acknowledged my complaints once in a while.
I hear nothing from Compuserve or Delphi.
