Sadly I have also been experiencing this problem with Eudora Lite and any
messages from Greg. I did not say anything about it because I presumed Greg
would not do it deliberately and would have already exhausted all
possibilities to prevent it.

Personally, as much of an inconvenience it can be, I would rather suffer
this inconvenience than see Greg becoming unfairly flamed and leave the
list. I am sure all would agree.

Greg, if you  can read this, please try and see if your hardware/software
settings need to be amended to prevent this problem.

If you cannot, so be it.
