  First, let me apologize for claiming you hadn't responded to the old
spam-control thread. After I was reminded, I remembered.
  I still would like to see the online archives up to date, and I
probably have time to help with that any way you'd like.

  Other symptoms - I'm subscribed under 2 accounts (just for this
weekend) because the server is flaking and I can't get
into the building. I tried to post from the "" and
got a bounce error from - user unknown. I'll forward the
bounce privately if you want. Second, I'm getting the list traffic on
this account literally hours before it shows on mdrconsult. I'm
reasonably sure that's not on this end.
  Not bitching, mind you, just offering fodder for the diagnostics.

  Thanks for all the fishes.
