I had occasion last night to go over one of my emails which is 
subscribed to probably 10 different lists.

I found that three of them have converted as long as a year ago to a 
scheme with nearly identical entries in the From:  field which is being 
complained about.

I don't know if the solution converted to here was made up by our own 
maintainer (who I don't know, apologies), but worth pointing out that 
many were doing the same.

This included some Yahoo group mailings as well, but not all.
