This list is excruciatingly slow, so I'll respond directly to you as well.
All of the information below (from my original message) goes in the BODY.
I've only used Pine once, so I don't remember how it works, but with Eudora
(or any other e-mail client I'm familiar with) I don't have any direct
control over the headers of my normal messages (other than by editing the
configuration file) so I certainly can't do what you are proposing.
So, the Approved, To, From and Subject lines below actually go in the body
of the message you send, and Majordomo reformats the message and puts them
in the headers of the outgoing message.
The crux of your original question was to do with Majordomo putting headers
in the body of the messages received from the list. This, for me, was
solved by making sure that in the body of the message you send to the list,
you put a blank line before the text you want in the body of the message
that the list members receive.
Hope that makes sense and I haven't muddied the waters even more. :)
