    Re: missing message

    No, that wasn't the weird part.The message had arrived immediately
    because I could read it on the Navlist thread but when I then looked
    for it in the archive it wasn't there. Nor had it been emailded to me.
    
    Oh, or are you saying that the archive gets the messages just like we
    do, by email from Navlist? and that that was the delay in the email
    system?

    messages of 2008 (don't worry: I only wasted 120 seconds on this!), it 
    appears that roughly 1 out of 75 messages arrives out of order. This has 
    nothing to do with NavList. It's just normal behavior for email which is a 
    rather low priority activity on the Internet. Most messages arrive within a 
    minute or less, but rarely they can take thirty minutes or even hours to 
    propagate. Don't worry about it unless 12 or more hours elapse.

    all sorts of reasons. I've recently set up the message boards/archives at 
    fer3.com/arc to check for messages on two different servers widely 
    "separated" on the Internet which seems to guarantee that no messages are 
    lost there (at fer3.com/arc) and also means that messages arrive out of 
    numerical order less often.
