Bob,

If your message is meant to suggest that my mail message contained
an incomplete "FROM:" field, I feel compelled to answer.

The address was complete. It is the COMPLETE address of my node on our
local net. I will agree is doesn't conform to standards. If I had the
authority to change the name to meet the standard format, I would.
(Not that you could use it anyway.)

However, please note I did include my COMPLETE MILNET address
at the bottom of my message, and, most importantly, I included the
proper punctuation at the end of my subject line.

P.S. If your mail message meant something else... nevermind.
