I wasn't seeing it before I set it. I have unset it now.

No, I'm not. But, I don't see them being fed to the transit server
either. The
reader appears to be sending them to the crosspost program and
"newslocal", which
again, is the replacement reader machine and is unknown to anyone but
"top" (the
current reader box).

I think that this is what we need to pursue, since "not-for-mail"
doesn't appear
