Hi, I think the OP should have expected something like this to happen 
when he emails somebody whose email address he got of an open mailing 
list. It was his responsibility to use an email address that was 
basically a throw away one and he should have couched it in terms that 
didn't matter if it ended up in the public forum.

If anybody emails me direct about a samba matter, it will very probably 
end up here, because I will reply only to the list, especially if it is 
in the middle of a thread.

I will decide if I want to reply direct to anybody that emails me, I 
suspect that is what Achim decided.
