I agree, it works good now, but if there would be a way to
place xxxxx@xxxxxx or what ever it does now, throughout the
message thread JUST for email addresses alone, that would be
great.  No one searches for email addresses in the
archives....at least not at my list.

Please do not! The system works perfectly now.
Email addresses are usually included for a very
good reason; removing them would cause more
problems than it would solve.

The 2 options Learning Stone pointed out seem
very sensible (either don't quote addresses or
else munge them). For more information on
address munging, see:
