This is the mail archive of the
mailing list for the Cygwin project.
First the bad news:
eMail list sellers pay bozos to join mail lists and harvest the addresses!
I sure wish that IETF would finish the specs on MTA authentication!
Now, the good news:
Thanks for your help. I very much appreciate it.

I receive the Cygwin email lists in digest format.
The email addresses are preserved in these.
Isn't this unnecessary exposure?
Can't names be harvested by subscribing to the list and then harvesting new
addresses from each new digest?
You're giving wa-ay too much credit to spam harvesters. The idea is that
you don't have to subscribe to any lists if you can just trawl the web.
If you assume that spammers subscribe to the list, the e-mail addresses
will always be available, not just in the digests, so all bets are off.
