I got some grey, but I still have some color in it.  Jeez, I guess I
am getting old.

The way nmh does things is what I am familiar pre-nmh days (MH) when I
was at UCI.

I see no reason to change it.

Other people with other MUAs tend to use bcc to do something similiar
where the recipients of the message are not exposed in the message, but
I like the MH/nmh way better.

On a related comment, I always like that MH/nmh includes lines
indicating if a message was a blind carbon copy.
