Great, these are the first mails I've received since signing up earlier today :)
Restricting posts to list members is usually fairly effective - I
guess this is not the case here? Having a mechanism for people to
register multiple addresses is sensible (I'm subscribed with one
address and replying from another today for example) but usually the
same can be achieved by subscribing multiple addresses and turning off
delivery on all bar one of them.
I'd be interested to hear what ends up in place as I'm working on the
new SAGE-IE servers at the moment and will want to keep those lists
spam free as well.
