Your mail to 'CoTyroneList' with the subject

    Re: [CoTyroneMailingList] Once more - Improving Searches on CTI

Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.

The reason it is being held:

    Post by non-member to a members-only list

Either the message will get posted to the list, or you will receive
notification of the moderator's decision.  If you would like to cancel
this posting, please visit the following URL:

But I am a member!  Or thought I was.  I receive all the e-mails you send.
Perhaps I replied to the wrong address.  Anyway, if you still need help
with inputting names I can help with that.
