    3. Please do not send it to me - I am on most of the Aus lists, and can receive plain rext only - as per most mailing list protocols. Have lost all of the previous weeks mails due to a mail my system was unable to download. Afte try ing day after day for several days, during which time the unemptied Post Office grew at an exponential rate, and I needed my ISP support people to kill my mails - 0ver 1000 by that time, I must request, thu the lists, that plain text only remain the rule. PS - I am still using Win 3.1 - but that is absolutely top secret. Am about to make the same plea to other luists, so please excuse cross postings.
