I bookmarked the page so I'll be able to send Mac users there. And I see
you
are using Yahoo email. How is it still working for you? I wasn't getting
anything
from the list by my comments to the list were making it to the list and I
suppose
getting distributed. So I switch to gmail, my messages get to the list and
go out
but gmail won't allow a copy of my comment to be sent back. Man what it
would
do to the idiots who thought this DMARC crap up. I still get loads of spam,
it only affected
email I want.
