Several people were nice enough to provide pointers and
encouragement... one of them may or may not have been who sent his
plight also to Slashdot, whuich appears to have shamed the responsible
department head out of his office.  Thanks.

On an unrelated topic: I may have discovered the
"nanog at,nanog at" problem's source:

I think it's the list.

I sent this message manually, typing in nanog at by hand as the
To address.

The reply-to is apparently *both* addresses, since that's what Mutt
picked up when I hit 'r'.
