A request to all Bhakti Members ... Technical but very short !

Due certain bugs in some configurations of Database based Messaging and
IMAP mail systems such as Lotus Notes and Oracle InterOffice, messages
sent through List Servers such as "Bhakti@lists.best.com" list the list
name in the "From:".  For example- email sent through the Bhakti list
always comes to me as the following header suggests:

As you see here I have no way of communicating with Mr. V. Sadagopan if
I already did not have his email address, since I use one of these
database based messaging systems. I have not been able to retrieve the
addresses of the contributors in my emails.

Therefore I request all of you to kindly SIGN OFF WITH YOUR EMAIL
ADDRESSES at the bottom of your mail, so if necessary there is no
difficulty in contacting a person off line through personal messages.

This is not difficult to do and can be easily done by adding a signature
file in any of your favorite browsers/email packages or unix shell
accounts.  I have registered the bug with Oracle and hope there is a
resolution some time soon.  In the meantime, I would appreciate if the
members of this community would adhere to this request.

Thank you
