Well I just tried to do what I think you're saying. 

I created a new posting profile, called html, with its own anti-html sig
file, and gave it "Beartooth (at) adelphia (dot) net" as my address.

Then I put that sig file at the bottom of a post, using the From: line
arrow, and hit Send. 

I got an error bos with only one button on it, saying Cancel. The log says
"No domain in email address," quoting "Beartooth (at) adelphia (dot) net"

I can't remember whether verizon requires authorization, but I know
adelphia does. Is that the problem? Or did I do something wrong? 

Do I have to put it into the sig file that the posting profile reads from,
instead of into the posting profile itself? 

Or is this maybe -- alas! -- a trick that gets past verizon's
authorization routine but not past Adelphia's? (Adelphia subcontracts news
to giganews; so the real authorization may be happening wholly or partly
there. I doubt adelphia, at least in my area, does anything whatever more
strictly or less badly than any other large ISP.)

I have precious (very precious) little idea where up is.
