I've actually been looking for more info on this type of thing, and here 
is what I found:

I can strip the address before transferring the article via NNTP, but 
this doesn't help if the article is posted/replied via SMTP.

I'm having a bad day, so this little problem (and any possible 
solutions) are just adding to my frustration.  If anybody has any 
suggestions, I'm all ears.
