Folks, I guess this is a 'finnicky' of mine - When you send a test, it
sorta drives us Admins nuts.  So I'm going to "pick" on rad0 a little -
This's for ALL list members though, really.

Probably best if you contact one of us if you're having problems, as we
know what solutions there are, and what to do & what not to do.

If you send a Test message, we don't know whether:

* You aren't receiving PICList posts, there's another fix and some
common propogation delays that happen there all the time.  (If you send
"Query PICList" to the PICList List Server at <spam_OUTLISTSERVTakeThisOuTspamMITVMA.MIT.EDU>,
and get a reply back listing your subscription options, you know you're
still ON the list - all list posts are routed from MIT to L-Soft, and
sometimes they get stuck enroute - They'll get there sooner or later.
The Administrative posts like Query PICList, go directly, so you should
get them sooner.  And, if you're on Yahoo, expect Slow e-mail, 15-20
minutes or so lag time now.)

* You aren't seeing your posts to the list, and there's one fix for
that, and ways to test.  (Send "Set PICList Repro" to the PICList List
Server at <.....LISTSERVKILLspamspam@spam@MITVMA.MIT.EDU>, then you will get a copy of your
own posts by default - The default is NOW Repro On, for a while it
wasn't though.)

* You're getting bounced "rejected" messages, there's another fix for
that.  (Your message has already BEEN sent once, then someone's mangled
mail server passed it back at the PICList List input address, and the
list engine's saying, "Hey - You SENT this already, why're you trying to
send it twice?!", in confusing language.)

* You are just checking to see if you're on the PICList, there's another
test for that.  (Send "Query PICList" to the PICList List Server at
<LISTSERVspamKILLspamMITVMA.MIT.EDU>, it will tell you your subscription options.)

The bottom line is, IF you have to send a Test Message, please at least
throw in a WHY you're testing, so we can help if help's needed. (And, if
it's "Testing to verify that I can send e-mail to all 1700+ list
members", please just e-mail Mike, James, or myself, instead.)
