Not sure if it relates or not but beware that what MS Outlook displays as 
'from' and what's in the 'From' header can (and quite often are) different. 
There's a FAQ somewhere in the Mailman or site that 
documents this and I've seen it as well.  Not all versions behave like this 
though, but it *might* factor in.

I'm pretty sure discard implies stop.
