Dang it... That reply went back to you and not the list and of course failed
again :-)

So here is the reply...

Hi Sean,

Nice to hear from you (I tried reply to an email you sent me directly but not
good because of what you mentioned. I CAN tell you that we send email OUT via
UUnet so is there anything I can do with them ?).

Anyway, yes, we have a NetGear hub in the mix...

I'm wondering if the disk drive is acting up ?

Thanks - I did have them take the diskette out and put it back in and reboot.
I've got email AND a call into Perle. They are USUALLY pretty good but have
been taking FOREVER this time...
