Kill the email list entirely and rely on the newsgroups - currently my >preferred solution. I'm all for the newsserver option 3. I have only one place where I still have mail delivery enabled and that is at my day work where the IT department has blocked the NNTP port entirely in the corporate firewall. *Everything* except port 80 is blocked.... But I can live with waiting until I get home at night to read the stuff and do some posting. And if you supply a web based NNTP read-only interface I could even *read* the messages during the day... But in all my other PC:s I only use the newsserver (and I have done for 5 years or so). Best way to handle the messages in my view. If option 3 is not going to happen then option 2 gets my vote. If people cannot bother to subscribe then they have no reason to use the list anyway. HTH /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
