Hi Tobias, et all,

Cleaning up my old computer, I came across the "OWASP.net" case. I am still
finding a lot of "@owasp.net"  email addresses for owasp members.
See screen print attached, when looking for owasp.net in the OWASP mailing.

So...? How comes staff does use @owasp.net email addresses?

Cheers,
-martin
