I assure you I was not trying to start a problem. I tried emailing [EMAIL PROTECTED] on 2/17/03 and I got the below error message. I think I have actually tried [EMAIL PROTECTED] in the past and also got an error message but I am not sure. Can you give me any other email addresses to try? I would really like to hear from someone at freebsd directly who knows why it was used.
If not I might try [EMAIL PROTECTED] again. It would dissappoint me if a flame war started over simply asking a question. Since this may be the case, maybe if anyone else wants to respond to me they can do so to me directly? No need to start a problem on this list. zerotransfer <>< net 007: This e-mail message was undeliverable due to the following reason: net 015: The destination mail system was not reachable withing the allowed period.
