Yes, but you're using qmail and ezmlm which send separate copies of the
message to each recipient, with the recipient's address embedded in the
return path. If, like us, you have a setup that's optimised to
de-duplicate multi-recipient messages, AOL's redaction makes their ARF
messages mosly useless for anything but rough detection (or confirmation)
of a compromise.
