Larry, again I don't think that is inconsistent. I took a week's vacation
in early July, and within 3 days my mailbox had overfilled (10 MB worth)
with spam and viruses and was telling everyone I was maxed out. In the
absence of info from someone who knows Dan, I would try him again this
coming work week, when it's likely he will be back. In the meantime, have
you tried downloading a fresh copy? That should certainly tide you over.
Please also keep in mind that he has a real job, and that MultiNEC is just
a spare time thing.
