If the From field (as displayed in Outlook) looks something like "techwr-l-bounces+sales=godaddy -dot- com -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com on behalf of sales -at- godaddy -dot- com," it's very likely from the listserv, and someone has indeed subscribed that email address.

It must have happened since my last post, because I haven't received such a message. Someone (or maybe everyone <g>) who received it should forward it to admin -at- techwr-l -dot- com so that the address will be unsubscribed.
