This new behaviour gets the list reading cumbersome and
inefficient, unfortunately. Previously it was possible to notice the
sender before opening the email, and, based on the sender and subject,
decide whether to open and read the message or not.

Obvisously. But, I'd like to ask you, as you are the maintainer, if
you can investigate and find which member on the list sends the spam
messages that was the reason for changing the From header, and switch
back to prevous behaviour?
Thank you and regards, Lars
