Thanks all for your input. Until now I have been always able to get the emails
out but sometimes I have to move the message from outbox to draft and back.
Addresses up to now always okay. No changes necessary. Before I send my
original email with the problem a message was stuck. I was reminded that that
message and the email to the list both would stay in the outbox. Moved the
first email to the draft box and the list message flew away. Put the
offending email back and it moved after five minutes to an addressee which is
a regular recipient. What I do not like that the fault is thought to be at my
side when I agree with some of you that it may an ISP connection problem.
I have ADSL 24 hour connection by the way.
