[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Housekeeping: Posting messages from a different address

In recent weeks, I have experienced increasing problems processing messages 
where people attempt to post messages from an address different than the 
one they registered under. Every message that bounces requires work on my 
part so I would appreciate your assistance by considering the following.

Our Mailman system does not recognize you as an individual. It only 
recognizes an email address. Therefore you MUST post a message or a 
response from the email address which you registered. If you do not, I must:
- go to the website to see what message bounced
- go through the list of subscribers (now around 240) to see if you are a 
legitimate subscriber
- create a polite response message explaining why there is a problem

Doing it once is not a problem but doing it several times as is the case in 
recent days takes significant time on my part.

IF you would like to be able to respond from different addresses, you can 
easily do so as follows.
- subscribe under two or more email addresses
- assuming that you only want to receive one copy of all messages, use the 
website to set the other email addresses to "No mail".

You can then post from any of those recognized addresses but receive 
postings at only one of them.
Thank you.
