Dearest Cypherpunks,

     I am really sorry about the remailer problem.  It is unique to
the configuration of and nowhere at  In
conjunction, they caused all of the anonymous postings to cypherpunks
to be echoed. inserts the "X-Anonymously-To" header
field into outbound messages.  Nowhere at searches for
"X-Anonymously-To" header fields and auto-remails to that address.
I just changed the program so that the only header fields it will
respond to are "X-Anon-To" and "Request-Remailing-To."

     Personally, I think that should use a different
name than X-Anonymously-To *or* put it at the end of the message instead
of within the header.  I admit that my remailer was "broken" in the
terms of others, so I have fixed it.  This problem would have been
fixed sooner if I had realized what was going on, but since I foolishly
thought I didn't need to keep logs for my remailer anymore, I never
saw the incoming messages, just the ones that cypherpunks at
mailed back to me with *my* account name on them.

     I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience.
