For the record, I recommended this exact solution in a direct (off-list) reply to Alastair last Monday, within hours of his original query appearing on the list. I use it all the time and would go crazy without it.
It appears that perhaps Alastair (or his employer) has his email account set up to block messages from unknown individuals and only accepts messages that are posted to the list. At least one other poster has noted he sent several private replies to you that had gone unacknowledged even though they proposed workable solutions. If you're posting a query, it probably would be a very good idea for you to mention any restriction to how list members should reply (e.g. direct replies only because you're on digest, or on-list replies only due to email filtering) so that the rest of us don't waste too much time and energy.
