Hi Alex,

I remember that this came up some time ago already, and I thought you had
fixed it then. Now I wonder why this question is coming up again?

I think it is a no-go for a mailinglist archive to publish email addresses
in clear text. Of course, there's no total control to avoid publication of
someone's email address on any website, but at least the *.typo3.org
websites should do their best to hide them from a visitor.

See this page which shows how Mailman handles it (quite simple):

If Jive is not capable of doing that, I would even consider to require a
login for that page (therefore, shutting it down for non-registered users).
