I apologize for posting it to the entire list, but I don't know who is the list maintainer. I will send them the entire article by email on request. Mark A.

In the past they have asked list owners if they may subscribe to the list in order to archive it, but now list owners are reporting FindMail is subscribing and archiving without asking permission from the owner. If you are the owner of a mailing list, you should check your list of members to see if is subscribed. If they are, your list is being archived. Remove them from the list if you do not wish this archiving to happen. =========================================================== [] TODAY ON THE WORLD is (c) copyright 1998 by Software Tool & Die.
