I've been seeing spam emails from the discussion, sid, hen and Arne distributions here the last couple of days. Admin can you look into? Also should we disable the distribution emails now that we have the fourum in place?

Cheers,

Gary

Now that I think about it, I can just unsubscribe from these distributions. Well, what about Arne. ;-)

The Status of the Lists...

Hi Gary:

I am aware of an issue with the SID list that I am dealing with now.

However, the Discussion and HEN lists have been shut down and no traffic has gone out from then since June (I just checked the archives).

There is no "Arne" distribution (or at least I don't know of anything by that name I'd connect with a list).

If you do believe you're getting email from the Discussion or HEN lists (as well as an "Arne" list) please forward them to me at "rkinne at aavso.org", including full headers if possible. I'd like to trace them down.

Thanks, Gary!

Doc, Your right! Looks like they are all from the SID distro with different originator headings. I sent 3 of them for your conformation.
