Yep, found out why. When I rewrote the address file, I separated all the addresses by asterisks (*), because going between unix and dos sometimes strips all of the carriage returns. I thought it would be easier to reformat the list if I put an obvious separator in between each address. Unfortunately, the software read the * as part of the address, and rejected every address on the list (except mine) as invalid.

Problem now (hopefully) fixed: waiting for the next one ;-)

Next digest is #21.

Subject: Who reads Swedish?


Ran across an interesting CD ... I think. The URL for this page is http://www.uk.umea.se/jazz/milvus.html . I can't find the CD at either Tower or CDNow, so I'm wondering if some of the Swedish on the page explains how to order the CD. Anyone game to try? Description of the instrumentation below, which pretty much explains how I ran across it ;-)
