Hi Dave,

I did not get a response from you but you wrote that you receive posts from the list. It seems neither Steve nor I are can send something to you?

Hi Gerd

That is strange, I received a similar email from the same person
a while back.  I believed that I had fixed his problem and replied to
him to try again.  He never replied back though, so perhaps he
did not receive my reply.

I shall look into this some more.  Could you reply to him to that
effect as you may have more luck reaching him.

There was a problem with one post that appeared to trigger a spam
filter on gmail, but that was more recently.
