Hi, IT-Discuss readers;

There has been some discussion about the amount of spam that comes through
IT-Discuss, and possible ways to reduce it. The list already requires that
senders are using a uvm.edu email address. Spammers, however, routinely
forge their From: addresses to make their messages appear to be legitimate
UVM mail.

One option would be to only allow subscribers of IT-Discuss to post to the
list. This may create an inconvenience for some subscribers because UVM
email addresses can take several forms. Some folks would need to adjust
their subscriptions.

I'm willing to adjust the list configuration if the community feels the
change is helpful and the subscription housekeeping issue is minor. 

Please let me know what you think.
