Sometimes people are dropped from the list as a self-defense action by the systems administrator--too many messages come back undeliverable. This happens quite often. In the old days we used to check out the reasons, but it happens too often to ask him to spend time finding out that a mailbox is full! The generic reasons can range from a campus computer being down, to something wrong on the physical net. When we see that messages come back only from a particular country or company, then we figure the fault is not ours. Usually these are transient faults that get fixed. When that happens then the dropped subscriber can resubscribe. Sorry if this is not optimal for some, but it is the best we can do within our budget (of zero!).

without any error or warning, the postings simply stop arriving.
Is this a common experience? It doesn't seem to correspond to any
snafus with the email account.
