However, I believe we're using Mailman ...

&gt; &gt; There is no feasible way to do what you are asking for, short of
&gt; &gt; removing the sender's email address entirely.  Even then... it is
&gt; &gt; ineffective because the body of the email may contain email addresses
&gt; &gt; from a reply or forward, and the diversity of email clients makes it
&gt; &gt; near impossible to determine where a client may inject the original
&gt; &gt; posters email address (headers included).  
&gt; &gt; 
&gt; &gt; Given the use of email addresses in sigs, RFCs, announcements, and code
&gt; &gt; samples (not to mention emails containing valid addresses that posters
&gt; &gt; are trying to share, i.e. Congressmen, etc), it would require human
&gt; &gt; intervention (i.e. a moderator, also not perfect) to scan each email and
&gt; &gt; decide what email addresses should remain. 
&gt; &gt; 
&gt; &gt; If you don't want your address public, get a diff email account for
&gt; &gt; public lists.

&gt; &gt; &gt; I'd love that to, but it isn't quite what I meant.  What I meant was
&gt; &gt; &gt; for the list manager (sorry, I don't know who that is) to change the
&gt; &gt; &gt; behavior of the archives so that the email addresses cannot be
&gt; &gt; &gt; obtained via bots or search engines.  I have seen a good many lists
&gt; &gt; &gt; that offer this protection for the  members.
