Yes, but it wasn't the problem. I'm currently subscribed to
lynx-dev-contrib and sent using my lists1 address. I read the
messages through Gmane's NNTP, though I don't send them through
Gmane. It's just a way to not have to do an ugly cut and paste
from the archives.

Here's the last I sent using the local MTA. All others are sent
through Bluebottle's SMTP. Yes, I removed the @.

Yes, years ago someone was forwarding them (quoted, instead of
just redirecting them), but it doesn't seem to happen anymore.
Last times I sent an e-mail with a wrong address they never
appeared. And frankly, they could at least send back an e-mail
about the list being moderated, what Mailman does by default.

We can do all the above if we move.

How to contact me -

; To UNSUBSCRIBE: Send "unsubscribe lynx-dev" to address@hidden
