    |        1. Going on vacation/Holiday and not stopping Navigation-l mail.
    |        2. Letting your ISP mail box get full.

    Comment from George-
    I think it's a more complicated matter than Dan implies, and further 
    investigation may be worthwhile. All is not well. Dan's
    comments, above, do not seem relevant to the problems we have suffered.
    How can it be that both Robert Gainer and I (and maybe others), on different 
    continents, should simultaneously receive a backlog of
    16 ancient Nav-l mailings, that we had missed over a period of 4 months? And 
    how can it be that others didn't? Where have these
    messages been accumulating, and what has caused them to disgorge?
    How can it be that postings sent yesterday, from Bill and from me, have taken 
    30 hours or so to reach my inbox?
    If Dan would like to take it up with Webkahuna, I can offer full header 
    information:  for example, for an email message sent early
    December, arrived yesterday. Do they show any interest in such matters?
