No. Mail to ilug at domain linux.ie should work properly. If it doesn't, either
your MUA (netscape?) or your MTA (who knows) isn't working properly. If
you mean a web-to-mail gateway, I'd prefer not to get into that -
authentication is a nightmare.

This has nothing to do with anyone's ability or inability to post using
any particular client. This is good policy for a mailing list, to avoid
accidental mail-flooding. It takes all of four or five seconds to
change the To: line in a message - better that a mail accidentally goes
to "one person, not 200" than vice-versa.
