[thelist] Any form wizards here?

There are two hidden fields both named "system_mailto". The first one gives
the value of "name0 at domain1.dom" while the second one has the value of
"name1 at domain2.dom". I'm figuring this was just overlooked when it was put
together. Get rid of one of those and you should be good as far as that's

As was already stated though, having all these values in hidden fields is a
bit of a risk. You might want to look around and find a free script to
replace this one with.
