I really don't mind the lack of BCC -- I never used it as a list admin anyway.
But I really miss the ability, as Larry mentions, of sending the same email
to more than one list without sending each individually. I don't send "mass"
emails very often, but when I have occasion to, I miss the Smartlist To line
stripping very much. For me, it isn't a matter of concealing, as it is not
confusing people, and preventing inadvertant crossposting.

Please, Rob - give it back?
