I did some quick testing where I have a gmail account.  I
automatically forwarded messages to my ISP email account and indeed
what Karl observed in the X-Forwarded.  The first email in there was
my gmail email account, and the second was the receiving account
(target of the forwarding).  Now the question becomes why would this
person do something like that?  Hard not to conclude that it was
intentional.  In my case I did it through forwarding all messages in
the settings.  However a filter can easily be created in Gmail to
forward based on a criteria (i.e. only Fedora list messages - which
makes sense seeing this person would not want non listserv messages
intended for him/her to forward to Karl).

dherbert66 gmail com, care to comment?

Expect that account to go dead pretty quick after this abuse of the
terms of service.
