Anonymous Headers

Some kinds of mailing lists benefit from allowing people to be anonymous when they post. For example, an employee suggestion discussion might need to be anonymous, as might a psychological support group.

Lyris supports Anonymous mailing lists, by removing all identifying marks from the headers of the messages distributed to the mailing list. The From: defaults to "Anonymous" and can be set to something else if desired.

If a list is moderated, the moderator will see the real author of the message before approving it, and it will "anonymize" when distributed.

Of course, this feature cannot read English, so if the message contents contains something which identifies the person, Lyris cannot do anything about that. Thus, people should remember to not include their personal mail footers when posting to an anonymous mailing list.
