Margaret and SANetters:
Any time your server goes down for more than two days, we (NCSU) will
remove your name from sanet mailing list. This is necessary because NCSU
computers spend too much time (=computer resources) trying to resend
every message to every *bad* address for three days. This slows down
other communications throughout the NCSU system.
Occasionally your own server (aol in Margaret's case) may be responsible,
since the receiving server doesn't want to *hold your mail* after you've
been cut off.
Sorry we have to do this. Knowing the volume of mail on sanet-mg, you
can usually tell that you've been *toasted* (just love that term) if you
don't receive sanet-mg mail for several days. Just resubscribe (see
below on how).
You can query almanac to see if you're still subscribed.
