You know what annoys me?  Broken mailing lists.  Someone ought to just fix
the list, so the illusion of non-delivery does not exist.

I know when I was looking for help with some Exchange issues about a month
ago, I found this mailing list and thought it would be a great place to
trade ideas.  So I posted a few questions the day I joined.  Each one of
them was "returned" to me by the list as undeliverable, so I assumed I had
done something wrong on my new list, and re-sent them (more than once, as
the message kept coming).  I had no idea that there was an outstanding issue
with this - I had just joined up.  I believe that most of the time with
these repeats, that's probably what happens... Someone stumbles onto the
list looking for help ,and finds their mails getting bounced (or so they
think), so they repost.

Why can't we just get the primary problem fixed?

I was rather disappointed that after having this conversation last week that
the majority of emails from this list this morning and over the weekend are
multiple sends. Nearly all of them look like non-technical duplicates (IE
sender sending the stupid thing multiple times).

This, in fact, causes me to tune the request out. I'm sure others will
answer it, but I will not. It proves 1) they are not keeping up on the list
or 2) they are impatient, immediate-feedback types who can't wait a while to
see if their email shows up on the list like everybody else's is (you're
getting other's emails, aren't you?).

Sorry, stuff like this just annoys me.

Maybe they think we will answer faster if they pound us with the same email,
over and over.

Why is there a recent trend to send multiple emails to this list? This has
been an issue with a couple users in particular, but happening frequently in
general. Some appear to be of a technical origin, but others are simply the
person sending more than one email saying the same thing.

In Exchange 2000 is there a way to customize the message sent when users
reach the size limit?
