Please don't remove anyone from the lists. The "From" is always forged, 
so you should ignore it. The Wine lists are currently getting about 1000 
Sobig.F viruses per day, some of them supposedly from Alexandre ;)

I have temporarily changed the maximum message size on wine-patches to 
40KB. So any emails with valid forged "From" headers will be caught for 
moderation. Since all the other lists were already set at 40KB by 
default, no viruses were able to make it through.
