Mailing list blues

The mailing list has been down for a little while - I’ve been too busy to fix it until just now.

It used to work, and then it started throwing an error, and now I’ve debugged it, I think (but I could be wrong), Python’s behaviour changed - it became unable to call a function (“email.utils.parseaddr”) because later in the same function, the variable “email” would be declared. Of course, if an undeclared variable is used, then it’s an error, but I’m surprised Python confused the leading part of a module name with a variable name - and that it did not seem to do so before. But I am Python hacker, I’ve never sat down and really read the docs, so I may be completely wrong and it’s just me, not understanding.
