I'd also like to suggest that a good way to solve this problem might be 
a polite off-list reply to the "offender", asking them to fix their 
mailer.  A terse public complaint, while it may make you feel all 
superior, does nothing but get peoples backs up.  Yes, I've been guilty 
of this in the past, but I'm trying!  (Very trying...)
