I did change the old HTML pages and configured the mail2html program
to hide the names but it was just brought to my attention that is not the only place where the erlang-question list is
viewable from a web server.

The mailing list is sent out to as well (I don't think we at
Ericsson added this, it is just an email address on the list). This
means that the mails goes unaltered to and can be viewable
there with email addresses

So if we really want to hide the addresses we have to filter the mails
sent to and maybe other places as well.

I have undone my changes to the HTML archive and mail2html program,
we have to come up with a solution, if any, that really works,
