I see you're using Thunderbird under windows for your messages to this
list. Is that going through the same server?

First, to answer the question, yes the same server.

Well, with a lot of futzing around--I'm not sure how I fixed it--I seem to
have gotten it working again. I called the help desk at optonline
(Optimum Cable) and, as I expected, the fellow was not familiar with
Linux, altho he seemed to be reasonably knowledgeable of the mail
routines, and suggested a few things that didn't work, including
changing the outgoing port. For a while, it seemed to be refusing
to send based on the sender being someone on the incoming
mail list, which had been read already! I finally cleared everything
in all mailboxes--in, out, sent, etc., emptied the main trash can--why
does it look like a spool of thread?--changed the port back to the
original 25, maybe I accidentally accessed something, i know I
unchecked _something_ but I don't know what it was--_sorry!_
and here we are. I think that some kind of virus got into the machine.
I'm not sure it's gone, but I hope so, having trashed a lot of
messages, in and out and, I think, saved.

BTW, I think I have turned off html in Thunderbird in Windows.
I didn't realize it was turned on. Windows is not helpful in that
respect. (AAMOF, Win 7 has been giving me fits, and I wish I
had never "upgraded" to it!)

Now all that is left is to use Reply-to-List instead of reply to all
when responding.
