Over the years, I have read mixed reasonings as to whether or not the fix
proposed below works. In theory, it makes sense. Can someone convince me,
without a doubt, which way? Thanks in advance.

Here's what you do: First, Open your Address Book and click on "New Contact"
just as you would do if you were adding a new friend to your list of E-mail
addresses. In the window where you would type your friend's first name,
type in !000 (That's an exclamation mark followed by 3 zeros). In the
window below where it prompts you to enter the new E-mail address, type in
<mailto:WormAlert@000.org> WormAlert@000.org
