My trouble was when I used the undisclosed.recipients_at_johncooley.net when sending a new email.  Then I remembered the address of list_at_johncooley.net and haven't had any trouble.  Bonnie, you might try using that.

The filters just don't like the Blind CC's. I'd consider that a failing of the filters except that they are merely flagging them. -Michael > I get all your emails, Bonnie. > > The "phishing" message isn't coming from the server.
