>>Barbara,
>>you didn't send anything to the list.

>>In the first instance, somehow, something is messing with message headers

>>the list.

>>but don't like to, mostly because it means a ton of work for me.

>>P***** me off as much as everyone else. Compared to numerous other lists
>>I'm on, we're doing VERY well though.

>>Not sure this helps.

>>p.

Arts),
