Another thing with the forum is that all senders have the same e-mail
(osgforum at tevs.eu), so in effect you can't send somebody a personal
reply without first lookup up their real e-mail address on the forum.
CC-ing them is also not possible. I assume the forum<->list gateway uses
the From: name to match up a post on the list with a user on the forum?
