Thought I would re-send as it didn't appear to be reflected - maybe it isn't

Speaking to the sysop we can limit e-mails that are passed by the reflector
to those that are sent from a subscriber to the reflector.  The only
downside to this is that there are a few dozen amongst the 254 who subscribe
to the reflector that post from other than their nominal e-mail address,
e.g. from a work e-mail address as well as home.  They would have to
subscribe from their alternative e-mail address and suffer duplicate
delivery of all e-mails, since there isn't an option to set "no mail" on the
current version of majordomo, the reflector's operating system.

Medium-term the sysop is planning to change from majordomo to mailman.  This
has the "no mail" option as well as other useful features.

Grateful for comments "for" or "against" limiting e-mails to those from
subscriber e-mail accounts.  I'm particularly interested in those who
normally access the reflector from more than one e-mail address, since all
others benefit by a reduction, if not elimination, of spams without any

There have been a number of instances recently (one today) of spam being
sent via the
lf reflector.  The reflector is in fact configured so that anybody can post
(try it
with one of your alternate email addresses), but obviously only those
subscribed will
receive postings.  Perhaps it is time to change this, ie so that only those
subscribed can post.

Perhaps the sysops of the list would comment.  Spam is getting more and more
