usually are. Anyway I'm copying over to current-users
because the discussion needs a wider consesus to be accepted.

Why can't we just sign up with an address from which
we would like to receive the mails (ONCE this should
be possible for most even if inconvinient, and if not
then the subscription gets verified.) and in this same
subscription we add addresses from which we wish to
post in addition to the address we will be receiving to.

subscribe current-users
subscribe port-hppa (yes a little wish on the way)
send from,,
