David Kaufman enlightened a few of us who have not rolled up our sleeves and Personally pitched in with how *much* behind the scenes work there really is: Hi Dave! I second Joel's sentiments. Wow! Thank you very much for stepping up and helping out. It *IS* mucho appreciantavo!  >>So, if anyone notices (or even just suspects) that the lists are jammed, I'd >>really appreciate it if you could email me at one of those addresses with a >>big "EVOLT LISTS GONE WONKY" sort of subject, Will try. I generally fret a bit, and then once-in-a-while send a note over to admin. >>Long term, I think it would be great to write a program that monitors mail >>bandwidth *and* alerts me and the other sysadmins (using some spam-free conduit) >>when obvious anomalies occur: Great idea, Dave! We had a number of these 'administrative alerts' set up here for a system I was somewhat involved with. I don't know much about mail systems and how easy/hard it is to count inbound/outbound traffic by day/half day/hour, but once loaded into a db I (and many other folks here) might have some ideas on how to work with it. Thanks Again, RonL.  I wouldn't say I make up a lot of words ... Oh sure, a little blush here and there ... maybe some eyeliner ... but that doesn't really count. Does it?
