[Cryptography] ADMIN: differing subscription and sender addresses

Some of you may have noticed that if you send from an envelope address
that isn't subscribed, your mail gets blocked even if your From:
address is correct in the email itself.

You can fix this by subscribing your other address and changing your
settings in Mailman so that the secondary address receives no email
from the list.

For those that care: The underlying issue is that, to stop the vast
amount of spam directed at the list from clogging the moderation
queue, or clogging the server email queue with bounce messages, our
server blocks mail to the list from non-subscribed addresses during
the SMTP dialog.
