As far as I'm aware this list can be mailed to by anyone, it certainly
used to be that way but I'm a bit (lot) out of touch these days.
Regards
Kevin

This last email came over the list, its a virus ofcourse, but what
makes this interesting is that it originates from taiwan.

so i think there are two things that could be happening, either
a member of the list living in taiwan is infected, thus the
email was accepted by the list manager (though usualy a virus
will change the from address with a random email from the addressbook),
or the list manager is not properly setup and accepts emails from
unlisted addresses.

any suggestions on this?
