    Right, but it`s the email address that`s registered, not any particular
    name. So if the `from:` included `brnetboard@tuarhievel.org`, as its
    address, the rest of the line is purely cosmetic, and theoretically you
    could put any name in front of the email address (in braces) that you
    desired. oracle.wizards.com should allow it. So you could have
    `From: Geeman <brnetboard@TUARHIEVEL.ORG>`
    `From: Lord Eldred <brnetboard@TUARHIEVEL.ORG>` and both would be posted
    correctly.

    I just realized that`s not rendering correctly on the board; in html, the
    line would look like
    `From: whoever <brnetboard@TUARHIEVEL.ORG>`. (less the quotemarks,
    of course.)

    It probably ends up on the forum :-)

    But why would someone want to use e-mail to post on the forum without
    posting to the list??

    What he wanted to say is that brnetboard@tuarhievel.com could change the
    displayed name every time a message is posted in the forum. For example,
    your e-mail address shows Gary when you send to someone, and mine shows
    Milos Rasic. In the similar manner, brnetboard@tuarhievel.com could be
    made to show different name, depending on the poster whose message is
    sent to the list.

    No good reason I can think of. I was curious.

    This is an header test.
    If the mailing List receives this with "arjan" as the sender of the email. the test worked.
