Hi Robin,

Thanks for the heads-up.

Unfortunately it seems that Yahoogroups's membership list
included just above everyone who was ever a member of the
list.

However, I hope (and pray) that I've managed to respond very
quickly to anyone who has asked to be removed.

Spam filters are another matter altogether.  I have no
control over these at all.  If they consider jaws-uk as
spam, and dump it, then the only course of action is for the
recipient to add the list to their "safe" list.

The subscribe/unsubscribe problems are invariably caused by
the sender's mail system adding comment markers, like >
signs to the message.  This messes up the message's commands
which, being Unix based, use a double slash as a command
delimiter.

Again I've tried to keep an eagle eye on this, and have
manually anyone whom I see with a problem.  I'm assuming
this effort must be working, since I've not had too many
people yelling at me on the list that their unsubscribe has
failed.

George.
