I can deal with the new format pretty well, but for one aspect, which is
very annoying.

I use Thunderbird as my email reader.  In the past, the "From" field
displayed in the message summary would tell you who sent the message to
the list.  It no longer does--it's all "CCtalk".

That makes separating the grain from the chaff a lot more difficult in
my case.

If anyone has a workaround for Thunderbird, I'm all ears.
