Frank:Martin uses the <> at the top of his messages because Stata FAQ 2.2(see: http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/statalist.html#before )states that the list server can sometimes "chop the first few lines" ofan email/posting. So, his <> symbol will be cut if any of the serverdoes remove the first line(s).You've probably tried this, but if the email program you are using (whichaccording to your X-MAILER properties in your message is Apple Mail(mail.app) 2.9) is attaching a signature to your outgoing mail, thissignature is html format. So, while you may be converting you message to'plain-text' before sending it on the mac (by highlighting you messageand pressing Shift+Command+T), your signature injects new html code intoyour message as it leaves your computer.(Remember that mail.app can be synching your signatures with your mobileme account in the background (see Mail Menu>Preferences> General Tab>Mobile Me... ) )If this is not your problem, then there may be bigger issues:1. what kind of text encoding are you using (see Message Menu>TextEncoding)? You might try switching to utf-8 (which would get you to 8-Bit encoding), right now your messages use are using mac's automaticencoding (text/plain; charset=US-ASCII; format=flowed; delsp=yes) & yourcontent-encoding scheme is 7-bit. Your outgoing server (smtp.mac.com)provides a content transfer method for encoding the message (e.g.,7-bit, 8-bit, and binary methods), when SMTP transmits data in 7-bitMIME defines how 8-bit data can be encoded in 7-bit byte stream fortransmission in SMTP. So, there may be something going on with youroutgoing server @mac.com that could be resolved by using a 8-bitencoding, like utf-8.2. It is likely that the mac.com SMTP server may be your own worstenemy.There are lots of reports of mobile me (mac.com) periodically dumpingmessages from certain ISP's (especially after they've been tagged ashaving some user sending out a lot of spam). I notice that your IPaddress and your outgoing smtp relay (e.g., asmtp011.mac.com,asmtp022.mac.com) have changed over the course of your email messages toStatalist from April 24 to today. Are you noticing any patterns of yourStatalist postings being 'lost' when sending just from work or home, etc?See this link for an interesting example of similar messages being 'lost'and someways to test this using Terminal and telnet(http://the.taoofmac.com/space/blog/2008/03/09/1100 ).If you go to the Mail Menu > Preferences > Viewing Pref. Tab and choose"Show Header Detail = All" and then check the full headers of yourmessages that made it through to Statalist versus the ones that did not,that might help you diagnose the differences among these messages. Ifyou want to send me the output of the headers on your unsuccessfulheaders, I can take a look & compare them to your recent 'successful'postings.Good luck. Eric __ Eric A.

So I replied to your last message, pasted some text from amessage that I have been trying to post, and sent it. The message didnot post. So if this message gets posted, it may be the copy and pastemechanism causing me difficulties.
