Disagree with me if you wish. I was merely pointing out why it happens. People's mailservers give incorrect responses and Yahoo! stops sending mail. If I was sending several million someones a letter, and it was returned as "unknown recipient," I wouldn't think "hmm, it just worked yesterday," I would just stop sending them mail until they confirmed that they mailing address was correct. It wouldn't be worth my effort to do anything other than that. Fuzzy -- Quidquid Latine dictum sit, altum videtur. Si hoc legere scis, nimium eruditionis habes. Vir sapit qui pauca loquitur. Cras amet qui numquam amavit, quique amavit cras plus amet. Uno itinere non potest perveniri ad tam grande secretum. On Fri, 26 Sep 2003, gangle wrote: > Yes, Fuzzy is absolutely incorrect on this.
