Hi Jay,

I emailed you a while ago, and never got a response so I am just
reposting it here. I've found most of the posts to ClassicCmp going back
to when I joined in 1997 a couple of months (I think) after the list was
started. If you need them, I can send them to you. There are some holes
but not many except for when I lost my email later last year. They run
somewhere around 600 MB.
