Thanks for the investigation. Actually,I first noticed the problem
because my own message sent around 2am ET has not  shown up in the
archive. I also responded to Anthony's message and that has also not
shown up in the archive. Both were sent via gmail. The relevance of
the comment about Anthony's message was simply that I received it in
between my two sent messages. I couldn't tell if this meant thelist
was receiving and processing mail and there was a problem on my end,
or if Anthony sent it well before my first message and thelist was
just now handling it (the latter is what I suspected).

I can't tell if my emails were distributed, because I do not receive
my own posts.
