I'm sorry so many of you have had messages delayed over the last day
or two (I had a couple disappear as well). I don't know what caused
it, but they all arrived between 4.40pm and 5pm today. I'll find out
from Vicnet what's been going on.
On another matter - those of you who used to subscribe in the past,
send a message, then unsubscribe, may need to change how you use
Now it's possible to be a member (and send messages to the list) but
not receive messages via email if you don't want them.
If you do subscribe/unsubscribe there is one further problem: all
new subscribers are automatically given a "moderated" status, which
means your first message has to be approved manually before you can
post messages to the list - this is to stop spammers subscribing and
sending messages. I can override this setting if I recognise your
email address from older messages - but that doesn't always happen as
it relies on me being wide awake and alert when I'm online ....
As soon as a moderated member sends a message, I get a message from
the Listserver to say that message is awaiting moderation, and I can
approve it in a few clicks -if I'm online. I have enlisted some
helpers so that we have (almost) round the clock coverage. If you
think your message has been delayed, lost, rejected, etc then please
contact me directly on this address and I'll do what I can.
