Personally, I like this change.

For many meany years I have, on a daily basis, had to manually move a
few stray messages from my catch all inbox to my SeeSat folder. There
was no way to filter all SeeSat messages with one filter as there was
no common and consistent identifier in any field. I certainly didn't
want to make and maintain a filter list of all subscribers.

Now I can use one filter to send all SeeSat messages to my one SeeSat
folder.

Personally, I think the better solution is to have an identifier added
to the subject line instead of the from field. This would be consistent
with other mail lists I subscribe to. In those cases something like
"[SeeSat]" is PREpended to the subject.

But hey, as long as there is SOMETHING that one filter can catch, I'm
happy.
