Once again, misconfigured mailer at Compaq site sends list messages
back to this list (and most likely to ANY list) and makes them to look
like duplicates from the original author.

Now it comes via zmamail04.zma.compaq.com.

(Last time it came via zcamail4.zca.compaq.com and zcamail5.zca.compaq.com)

If you think somebody is mad, it is not you or the message author, it
is Compaq postmaster. If they do have any.

Regards

Vaclav
