i've got a tense situation here with Domo 1.93 on Free BSD..i need some
assistance with phrasing a regexp in perl..

a newbie to my list has somehow (for some reason) started bouncing all his 
messages back to the list. i've remooved him from the list and have 
restrict_post set to list and list-digest only, but his mail is sneaking 
around all of's a sample from the header..

From: Original Message Author <good@list.member> (by way of 

bad@list.member is no longer subscribed but the "by way of" method of 
forwarding is not known to me.

i've tried to alter my resend script thus:

   } else {
   # check for administrivia requests
   if (defined($opt_s) && ! defined($approved)
		       && (/^subject:\s*subscribe\b/i ||
         ---->         /^from:.*by\sway\sof\b/i ||
                       /^subject:\s*unsuscribe\b/i ||
                       /^subject:\s*remove\b/i ||


this is not catching the "by way of" expression. help?!?
