Hi all,

This isn't in any way intended to be a gripe, but I was wondering what it is 
with the mails that come through on this list - very often the formatting is 
completely messed up. I've never experienced this on any other mailing list 
(I use quite a few), but this kind of thing is what I'm talking about:

you need to be more specific and we should be able to get this problem 
sorted..Which List?When does it hang (booting, desktop, accessing a specific 
program or doing a specific thing in a program)?What number? (Part of the 
kernal version)If you can answer some of these questions then people will be 
able to offer help..JamesPS. sorry about HM

Any ideas what's going on? Is it that the senders' mail programs aren't 
configured properly or does the list server have issues?



PS. I didn't intend to pick on James, it's one example of many.
