if you get this...
any msg posted has to go thru a few servers along the internet before it
reaches someone else.
everyone is linked thru different servers along the way.
if one of those servers is having maintenence or any hiccups it might never
get past that point in the chain.
you can see the route of any msg after it is read by right clicking on the
msg line, then click on propetys and read the top line from the end
the end of the line is from the sender towards your computer at the
you can check quickly if someone is posting thru google groups as that will
show as the last link on the top line and your isp or the last server before
the msg got to your computer will show at the beginning of the line.
most posts go thru about 4 servers along the route.
any one of those is out and it might just *poof* into the lost world of
***space and never reach some of us.
ack, not sure if that is clear enough for you. i'm only on first cuppa and
the foggy morning here means its a bit cold still and fingers and brain
arent up to***yet, not that they'll get any better but one can hope they
will at some point in the day.
i'm sure someone else will have a clearer explanation soon.

During the past couple of weeks, I've noticed that I'm receiving a lot of
replies to messages. However, I've never received the original message. I
can usually find the message with the replies, but it's annoying to read
the answers first, then the questions. Anyone know what's going on?
