How do you access the internet? Via a local ISP?

My local ISP contracted with GMail to handle their email system. This
allowed me to configure my local email account to retrieve my,
and mail. Am I correct in that you are using a GMail account for
a similar purpose?

Now, while this may be anathema to some, you can get a FREE AOL account
and it will SUPPOSEDLY allow you to retrieve GMail and Yahoo Mail
messages; I don't know if there are other systems that it can get mail.

Regarding the [NTLK], the list software adds it I believe so if you put
it in manually then there would be the possibility of your messages
starting with [NTLK] [NTLK]. However, the list mom could tell you more
than I can.
