The think is though, in my case anyways, is that the computer that I
read these emails on and usually post from, does not have access to the
WWW. The only access I get is to the company's MS Exchange server. So if
I am having a problem with my server at home, I usually post it and read
the responses while at work on my spare time, so I can't always check
the archives before making a post.
