Hello, Edoardo,

Thanks for the reply. The account has been re-activated according to
supp...@pm.org

I went through the bitcard process and have a new password but things
are not changed. thus:

anothera...@pandora:~$ cadaver https://groups.pm.org/groups/za.pm.org

thus not sure where to go next. Maybe supp...@pm.org are incorrect.
Since the za-pm site is visible, it must have been done?

What do you think, I want to be certain of my facts before I go back to
supp...@pm.org  -- don't want to look a bigger fool than I am  ;)

(I see you did copy the list)
