Re: NFC: ADMIN - Not Yelling! :) - List Change ... ?


The major disadvantage I see to Yahoo is they truncate
long messages, you can receive them from outside yahoo
but if you want to resend it then it gets truncated.

The only way it works for me is to highlight and copy
half and send it then the other half. Roberts articles
all have to go in two parts from my yahoo account.
