Thank you for your reaction...but it's unnecessary; only people who get
mail through dreamworks.com saw it as coming from dreamworks.com. I
saw the From: header as Project.Manager@Rodents.Montreal.QC.CA. Some
MTAs - yours and mine among them, it appears - tack on their local
domain when they see a From: header with no domain name in it.
And it hit at least four NetBSD lists; I know 'cause I got eight
copies, two each through port-sparc, port-alpha, port-m68k, and
I've already fired off a complaint to the best addresses I could find.
