After a bad experience a few years ago, I *never* set the folder's
default recipient. I had the folder set to send to the list, and stuff
got in the folder via a marker in the subject. One time a guy replied
to my list post with a super secret response, I hit reply, and my reply
to his super secret response went to the whole list.

No more: I don't need embarrassments like that :-)
