The Steam-List has a 100% effective anti-spam feature, but it sometimes causes problems for the members. That feature is: If the list management software receives a message from somebody whose email address it doesn't recognize, it rejects the message and sends them an email saying that only list members can post to the list. This prevents (essentially) all junk mail from ever reaching the list, but it also means that a member whose email address has changed cannot post to the list. The problem is that sometimes a person's employer changes their email address for outgoing messages but arranges so they continue receiving incoming mail sent to their old address (for awhile). The person may not even know that their outgoing address has changed. They may continue to receive messages from the Steam-List that were sent to their old address, but one day when they decide to post a message they get one of the "never heard of you" automatic replies. If this happens to you, please let me know your old and new addresses and I will unsubscribe one and subscribe the other.
