Thanks for the tip. Bob Holmes and I did just that with no
results. What we found out was that our server (COX) required we
send a copy of an email from EVERY MET LIST MEMBER and tell the
server that it wasn't SPAM. Evidently, every Met List email is
considered separate from the List itself. I just don't have the
patience to spend hours and hour trying to fix a problem that didn't
exist last year or even ten years ago. It was easier for me to
subscribe to the Met List with a Gmail account. It, by the way, has
worked fast and flawless.

Too many people were born on third base
and go through life thinking they hit a triple.
