I found the two posts by Drago. Tony responded to both of them, but
without quoting his email address. There were no other replies. A search
for Drago's email address (in my local mail database) only returns his
own posts. So that's not the way the address got out.

Of course, everyone else on the list has his email address on their PC as
well and if they caught a virus, for example, it's possible that the
address got out that way (e.g. used as a fake return address).

That would still be a good idea.
