Fow whatever reason (probably something financial in nature)some third-party e-mail services buffer your e-mail so that even if you sent a quick response to a lists members plight that response may not arrive in a timely fashion...say within a few moments of the actual response. Does anyone have any hints to help find a third-party, preferably free, e-mail service that does not cache/buffer/fold/spindle/or otherwise mutilate your e-mail? wwjbd...
