Subject:        My Internet Demon

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

It appears that my internet demon is alive and well and very hungry as it eats
messages forwarded to me.  I am having lots of people, including the chair of
the Computer Science Department, lending me a hand at trying to locate and
kill the monster.

Here is what happens.  Messages sent to the list This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
appear to be received properly.  Once the message arrives, LISTSERV sends a
message that the post has been received and that it is being forwarded to
the editor.  Here's the problem.  For some reason, significant numbers of these
messages are not arriving at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. -- the account I use to
edit the SHAKSPER digests.  I am having people looking to see if the problem
is with the Unix SendMail configuration file, but I am also exploring the
possiblity that the problem is with the University's network setup.

For now, my mailbox is clear.  If you have not seen a posting for the list, I
have not received it -- the hungry demon has devoured it.

Again, if I'm going to reject a posting -- something I very seldom do --
I will write you to tell you my reasons.  So if you submit and do not see
your posting please send it directly to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or
try the list address again.

I am very sorry and hope that soon someone will figure out the problem and
set it right, but resolving internal network problems and setting up the
Unix mail configuration file are skills that are simply beyond me.
