  Hi Mark -

  This is a relatively common problem with e-lists.  The simplest,
  most direct way to solve it is for the receiver to scan through
  the email headers at the top of a posting and to extract the various
  e-addresses listed therein.  It of course requires an email client
  software that allows viewing of `full headers.'  Buried somewhere
  within the header lines should be the exact address that the person
  subscribed under.

  Typical issues are with school addresses.  <j.doe@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
  may actually be <john_q_doe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>, and J Doe might
  not even be aware of the exact address that has been listed.

  Hope this helps.
