how what appears in 'To:' depends on how ones email address book is set up.

the 'To:' in this reply will appear to me as 'example mail list' because
my address book is configured to *display* 'example mail list' for email
address of 'geleem at'.

for it to appear this way in a recipient's email, they would have to have
a similar entry in their address book.

or so it works with thunderbird.



peace out.
