Thats useful for surveys, but hardly for addressing an E-mail, unless I
keep a copy of the list.  (and remember which address is for who.)  For
example I have 101765.2200@compuserve.com in the curent members list, but I
have no idea who they are.  Nor did they answer when I asked people to
check their name in the list.

Agreed!  Assuming we don't dismantle LIT.  This would be a big help in
puting automatic subscription to the group into the site.

Does this function store these messages?  I thought it just forwarded them.
If so, you could just subscribe an account for the newsletter, from
whoever winds up maintaining the newsletter site.
