jason,

i had the same problem too towards the end of last year or beginning 2006. i am not sure though whether the reason why it happened to me would be the same as yours.
essentially when i switched from the 'old' hotmail to 'window live mail' hotmail, the post set-up was changed from so called 'fixed width' to either 'rich text' and or 'html'. somehow this did not agree with the list mechanic. when i switched back to 'old' hotmail set up,which uses 'fixed width' everything's cool again.

computer, internet, softwares being what they are i am almost sure your problem would be a different gremlins from mine.

regards,
bw

Has anyone had the experience that sent messages
never show up on the list? I seem to be receiving
but my own message from yesterday seems to have
disappeared into the ether. I'm using
<statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu>, which appears
to be the same addy I see on this reply message.
Curious to see if this one finds its way...

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!).

I find I have to resubscribe to statalist every few weeks;
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.
