I believe you are trying for AAA.  As I understand it, the various 
levels are set approximately as follows:

A  - The marketing department wouldn't naturally comply, but wouldn't 
notice if a sub-contractor created pages to this level;

AA - The marketing department would probably try and change some things 
to reduce it to A, but can probably be convinced not to - branding 
compromised, small print easy to find/read, facts clearly stated, etc.

AAA - Most marketing departments would have severe objections.

So, by chosing AAA, you more or less have to accept that marketing 
oriented managers will object.  Marketing department perceptions and 
accessibility very often conflict.

Reply-To: set to list.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
