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 
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.
