Yes, indeed.  Though, unfortunately, there is a header, that is fully 
legitimate for a user to set (and sign), but is rather abused by Mailman — 
thatʼs ‘Sender’.  Neither Majordomo nor public-inbox do that, why Mailman is so 
peculiar, I wonder.

In the light that is <>, which is 
commercial email service provider, that looks funny.  It might even be a good 
idea to contact them, rather than user.

In any case, thank you for taking the time to explain.
