Can you fix you "From:" header - currently it has a double name and an
extra set of <>, which messes up replying and probably other things that
need to parse mail headers:

There's a bug in the trac account manager plugin which results in those
emails not getting sent correctly sometimes. James tracked it down
but I'm afraid I've not had a chance to install a workaround yet.
I'll send you the token directly shortly.

That's as documented, so not a bug as such:

| At present only right truncation (e.g. Xap*) is supported.
I have a work in progress branch to extend wildcard support, which
supports your case amongst others:
But for URLs and email addresses, I'd recommend indexing them split at
the punctuation, which is how TermGenerator/QueryParser handle them.

The moderators are sent a list each day of held messages, and yours wasn't
in yesterday's so it's been on hold less than a day as far as I can tell.
The queue is processed most days, so the text on the website seems
accurate to me:

I've added that paragraph to the mailman templates in case people somehow
end up there without going via the website.
