I assume that you could, though I don't know if it would cause trouble
with some lists that check headers carefully.  In this case, it was more
the challenge of getting it to work.  :)

I may briefly join the list with a gmail account and see what happens.
I don't really use it either, but have it (hrrm, it might have been
George G who gave me my invite) and as I said, I got interested in
getting it to work after another nycbugger ---no, we HAVE to get a
different term for that--err nycbugist? ---well, anyway, after another
fellow on the list had mentioned his gmail account on bsdforums.
