Thanks for your thoughts. I was able to subscribe to the Apache users
list with my primary email address from my wife's Windows box, which is
behind a Debian firewall. No problems, no questions.
Once again, the problem is not my setup. I can post to every other list
I'm on, no problems - Debian, Red Hat, Procmail, fvwm, inn, ip-masq,
(several others I won't bore you with). The problem is one of
discrimination against Linux when it's used as a desktop. As I stated,
I had no trouble subscribing from my wife's Windows computer. I went
through the subscription steps including authenticating my email
address, and was a member of the list within 2 minutes from when I
initiated the subscription request.
I have no choice in using several email addresses. My responsibilities
require I do so. I HAVE to be able to respond to queries to
support@(nazarene.ch|fcwm.org|wesleyan.net) using the respective
support email address, because replies to my letters to clients are
forwarded to several other people on the support staff for each
organization. If I don't do so, but instead use only my
email@example.com, I receive the mail fine, but none of the other
support staff members do. That is totally unacceptable.
I would like to sincerely thank the two people who actually answered my
question and sent me suggestions for other web servers. I was able to
without problems subscribe to the AOLserver list. I'll be testing it
to see if it does what we need.
