NOSPAM.net doesn't exist. That's why I use it as my email address when
posting to newsgroups. In M$ Outlook Express there are different settings
available for email and news accounts which is quite convenient. I'll just
have to learn a seperate news client for RH. Any suggestions?

Don't forget mailman can be set to refuse mails with attachments (I think),
or mails over a certain size.. maybe the HTML put it over the limit.
I know mails with binary attachments have been blocked before..
Then again, I think the .NOSPAM.net might have been your problem,
I don't think .NOSPAM.net exists..
(And don't test with html mail, please.. :))
