Leaves me wondering what happened. Did Freelists chuck me off for a

Look at the online archive:
Compare what is there with what you got.
Spam filtering is a common cause of differences.

I received neither of the above messages by the normal method. What I
have quoted is from the Freelists online archive. I'm writing this
from MPro, hence the fresh "(B)" thread.

Many of the November messages on the online archive I definitely have
not received by the normal email route. Unfortunately the Freelist
index of the online archive does not show a date on each message. I
have not opened all of them to compare date against what I did receive
by normal download. Here's a summary of my recent normal downloads
for the Armini-support list:

with another column for my incoming mail:

Nov 17 0 so far 1 = yours

It looks like you are missing a lot. But while every message has its own time
here, I'm wondering if Apple Mail is double counting followed-up messages.
I'll see if I can make more sense of them tomorrow.

Yesterday I unsubscribed and then subscribed afresh to see if that
will make a difference -- nothing so far.

Same MPro filter has been in use for this group for several years, and
my spam filter routes any suspected spam to a special folder where I
check it. So I think we can rule out filter problems.

Checked my ISP (Spellings); logs there show no rejects; nowhere near
quota limit.

Is it just that traffic is low?
