I am afraid that I have had some problems with yahooGroups myself, but 
given that some people are subscribed in a "view via web" mode it would 
be too painful to change to something else (even a modest server like I 
have could easily handle a low volume list with less than 200 
subscribers, so I have thought about this before).

Looking through the membership list, I couldn't find Gordon Cichon 
there even though he was subscribed the last time I looked a few weeks 
back. So I am sending him a copy in case he is no longer receiving 
mails from this list.

In the case of David Ungar it seems that he and several other people 
are subscribed with "Eng.Sun.Com" addresses but now are using only 
"". Unfortunately, I can't fix that myself - each person will 
have to follow the instructions about "alternate email addresses" and 
that can be a real hassle if you don't have a Yahoo identity and 
remember your password.

In another thread (subject: Self4Linux-0.2.1) there seems to be several 
empty messages except for an attachment (at least for those who 
requested non HTML messages). If you look at these same messages via 
the web ( the 
text is there. It seems that Yahoo has some kind of a problem when 
dealing with attachments in replies.
