Yup.  That still stops 99.99% of spam from people who scrape mailing
list archives for victims.

Also, if you use a locked address to post to a mailing list, you
probably want to set the lock type to "Hold for review" rather than
"Reject", in case a list subscriber tries to e-mail you off-list.
It's kind of rude to post on a mailing list from an address that
rejects such legitimate off-list traffic.

Regards,

David.
