Thank you - one less list I'll get kicked off of regularly. 

One note, I am seeing the author in the Reply-To: in the message
headers, not in the visible Cc: as you indicate:

   From: Johnny Hughes via CentOS <centos at centos.org>
   Reply-To: Johnny Hughes <johnny at centos.org>,
    CentOS mailing list <centos at centos.org>

so to see the address of the sender I have to either poke through the
headers or initiate a reply. I don't think that this is email client
