Nope Gerald.  I have a spam scanner and suspected spam goes there, but it is 
shown and is very retrievable.  It just appears that for about a 12 hour period 
beginning sometime Sunday and lasting till about noon Monday that no TCB 
e-mails came through to my computer, even the ones that I sent Monday morning 
didn't show up until about 1:00pm.
 
It appeared to me that they must have just backlogged in a server somewhere.

I didn't fix anything. And it appeared to be working fine for everyone else.

Like I said in the off-list message, I suspect you and Sammie are both 
using something to do "anti-spam" checks on your email and it got a
bit 
overzealous -- Like Mike's replies to the list that always end up with 
the subject changed to "****SPAM**** [Original subject]".

The freelist server regularly gets put on "blackhole" lists like 
spamcop.net because people can't follow simple unsubscribe directions 
and get mad when whining and crying to the list doesn't get them 
unsubscribed (not the TCB list, freelists hosts THOUSANDS of email 
lists). Then they report list mail as spam and the servers get on the 
spammer lists -- affecting ALL lists that the server hosts.

Are you both using something like MailWasher to scan your mail before 
you pick it up? Or maybe a Norton or McAffee anti-spm addition to their 
anti-virus applications?
