Thanks for adding that to the allow list.

I send mail using Google's smtp servers, but I sent this mail *as*
kfogel at -- the "From" header is from kfogel at (as
is "Reply-to", though that shouldn't matter for our purposes).

However, the "Sender" and "Return-Path" headers say kfogel at
Maybe the list software was looking at those instead of at "From"?
Below is the full header on the sent mail, if that helps.

  Return-Path: <kfogel at>
  Received: from floss ( [])
          by with ESMTPS id bk7sm1677208vbb.13.2011.
