 I may be wrong about this, but...
 If you post a message to SCREEN-L and you get an error message like
 the following that seems to indicate that your message did not make
 it, you should just ignore it.
 It appears to me that American University's mail system is mishandling
 error messages and sending them directly to the original poster of
 the message instead of to me, the SCREEN-L coordinator.
 Or maybe the problem is at GMUVAX (George Mason U?)...
 Anyway, if you get one f these, just delete it.

 I need more specifics, Don (or anyone else who is having a problem).
 What sort of error message are you getting?
 Sometimes when one SCREEN-L recipient is having trouble receiving
 mail the error message will (incorrectly) go to the person who
 posted the message (like Don) rather than to me, the SCREEN-L
 coordinator (who *lives* for error messages).
 If this sounds like your problem (if the error message came from
 somewhere besides SCREEN-L) then it's just an occasional blip
 that you should ignore.  If it's something else, buzz me at the
 address below and I'll try to figure it out.
           Hell take curtains!  Go with some show
           of inconvenience; sit openly--
           to the weather as to grief.
           Or do you think you can shut grief in?
