Ah-ha! I turned on Show All Headers, and you are quite correct (as you 
knew) - it does address it as General at Oddly enough when 
I type in General into the To: field it does pop up with 
cctech at as the recipient-to-be.

My address book had:

General Discussion: On-Topic and Off-Topic Posts <cctalk at>


General Discussion: On-Topic Posts <cctech at>

And I have now deleted the "General Discussion:" - perhaps the colon is 
throwing things off?

Let's see...
