[ic] Setting message priority on interchange-users messages

Be polite, please.

NEVER set the urgency to high on mail list messages. It is not polite,
and it causes some mail clients (the ever problematical MS Outlook,
of course) to send return-receipt messages to the mail list and/or the
admin of the mail list.

I have received dozens of these in the past weeks, and I don't like it.
No mail list message is ever urgent in that way. 

People who continue to do this will be blocked from the list, and if
it persists in general other measures will be taken, which will cause
people who MS-Outlook-specific headers to have their messages delayed.
