When the number of bouncing posts regularly exceeds 
the amount of non-bounce mail I receive - it's time
for some reminders. 


Issue 1:

Many of our subscribers use forwarding type e-mail accounts.
I have no problem with that. 

However, please be aware that when the end (hidden) account
becomes discombobulated ("inactive" for our non-english 
readers) for some reason, I get stuck with your bouncing 
mail and trying to figure out who you are based on what I 
have. The excite@home mess over the weekend is a good 
example. If you have a forwarding address that doesn't 
provide me with clues as to who you are (like a call or 
name) - I'm stuck with a fast filling inbox and NO way to 
turn you off. Even with clues, it's hit or miss sometimes.

So, if you have a forwarding account (like n7wa@arrl.net),
you need to be proactive in managing your e-mail lists.
I would be happy to help you update your account.

Issue 2:

While we are at it, during these very busy periods
(4 major contests in the space of 5 weeks), check your
inbox once in a while and empty it out. I have had
to unsubscribe a number of overflowing accounts. You
can also turn it off if you expect to be away.

All in all, this is a great list with few problems. But
you do need to maintain your account(s).
