1. In the above case I issued instructions to the server to delete the old
subscription and to add the new one. However, the easiest thing to do is to
type the old address into the "From" header. If this is not possible, and
it may not be in some cases, please contact me.
2. If you post to the list and get a message about "mailbox full", ignore
it. This is a problem with some mailservers (e.g., compuserv.com) to which
the listserver tries to deliver but is very difficult to trace. Your
message has been delivered to the 1250 or so other subscribers.
These FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) should be posted as people learn
from them. Any others?
