I find it a bit maddening that such is the state of mail servers in
the late 1990s...   Back in the Dark Ages (the mid-to-late 80s),
our distribution list servers at Xerox would check individuals
against the list and prevent those people from getting duplicates,
which served only to clog up the servers anyway.  This is highly
inefficient, but I suppose I can live with it.  Sigh.  Even Xerox has
taken huge steps backwards... after inventing the GUI, which
was stolen by Apple and then stolen again by IBM and Bill Gates,
they went on to produce the most elegant user interface ever...
... and then they walked away from it in favor of a Microsoft
"solution."  Ah well, it's.... cheap.   :o)
