Topic: list is being rather slow (8 msgs / 168 lines)
1) From: Ben Lowery
i switched over to using gmail for the list, but it appears that
messages are still being help up quite a bit. i sent this message at
8:28PM EST on the 17th of Jan. Mail to a variety of other hosts from
gmail is getting through quite quickly...
This is really odd for a mailing list. I know Tom and Maria are paying
for this list, but I would strongly suggest moving it elsewhere if
possible, or talking to the hoster. Messages just shouldn't take this
long to post...
I have mail-list hosting available that I would be happy to donate if
need be. I really enjoy this list, but the posting delays are really
excessive.

Ben, are you posting to the list from your gmail account?  Is it signed up
to receive the list?  It sounds like the only thing that would delay your
posts is if you're sending email from an account that isn't recognized by
the host... then they go into moderation to be approved during office hours
(which is why your email from Saturday didn't post til this morning).
Check to see if that's the problem.  Everyone else seems to be able to use
gmail on the list without problems.  of course, some dislike other
features...

Hi Bill,
I've been having identical problems. Weekends are blacked out. I'm a new
user, and switched to gmail because it was reported to work well. I don't
know all the reasons why things go into moderation, so I don't know whether
I'm in moderation for being a new user or because my account isn't properly
registered. I'll double-check my profile.
But yes, weekends are blacked out for those consigned to the moderation
queue.

4) From: Ben Lowery
Hey Bill,
I'm subscribed and posting from the same email address, so I don't
think that's the issue. To echo Doug's message, I did get a spate of
messages today from over the weekend, so maybe the hoster was just
having problems this weekend?  We'll see how fast this gets through..
:)

What moderation? Not gonna do it- wouldn't be prudent. I don't think that
way. -ro

6) From: Dean
Uhmmm
NO
Gmail eats my postings to the list at least half of the time and NEVER 
sends me back the postings that it doesn't screw up.
It's been like this for almost a year.
Last spring I must have tried to send at least a half-dozen messages 
about my trip to the Specialty Coffee Convention in Mpls.  None of them 
ever got thru.
If anybody has any helpful and non-obvious clues as to why it's doing 
that, speak up, but the new list plus Gmail suxx.
And I can't just use another email service--wildblue sold out of email 
in favor of gmail, so except Boohoo which sux worse, I'm SOL.

7) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
What Ray means is that some posters have their messages held - it's 
automated and has nothing to do with us, but we have to manually 
approve them. The main reason for this is that the email you 
suvscribed is slightly different from the one you are using to send 
your emails to the list. I think it might even have trouble with the 
same address configured a little different, for example you 
svbscribed joe but your email comes from 
joe
If your posts are delayed, email Maria or Derek (he is usually the 
one on top of the queue) to see if that's the hold up.  -Tom

My gmail account doesn't know from nine different computers in Denver,
Westminster, Arvada, Pueblo or Red Lodge, Mt. Even with Gretchen's Mac, it's
the same gmail account.
