Strangely enough, yes. It wasn't meant for the list,
I just replied to Stefan's message.

The one I posted to the list one hour before is still
'somewhere'. Or isn't anymore at all. I verified the
address in my outgoing mail logs, it *is* correct.
No HTML. No attachments. No foul language.

Don't think so. All the years I've been using this
service (HostEurope in Germany) I've received quite
informative message for anything that did go wrong,
either there or down the line.

OK. Some lists will have the first few posts moderated,
just to be sure it's not some spammer.

Pauli Virtanen copied my message to him to the list,
and Stefan van der Walt CC'd it to Peter Wang. Someone
should have seen it.

I'm not convinced... Will try posting again.
