You can actually subscribe to ron-l in a digest form, but I'm not sure how to get that going yet... Anyway, one of the questionably cool features of the software is a feature which allows only list subscribers post messages to the list. This means that when you post a message, the software checks the From line in your email message to make sure it appears as in the subscription list. In Nils' case, ron-l mail gets sent to nils@cs.bu.edu. Nils tried to post something from work, nils@mak.mak.com, which got bounced back to him since the message's originating address didn't match. All I had to do to fix this was to send a message to the listserv to tell it to accept mail from the alternate address, but still only send the mail to the original address. mailto: ron-l-commands@lists.best.com in the message body: alias nils@mak.mak.com After submitting the command, the listserv will send you back email asking whether you really want to execute the command. You then send back an ACCEPT message, then you're golden. Man, that was a mouthful. Nils. Give that posting from work a try. I think I fixed it. I believe someone else sent me a similar email, but I can't remember who it was, and the message is gone. If it was you, please try the above and let me know if you're having problems. As always, enjoy!
