No, that wouldn't be it...  I sent it from my @Home connected machine;
plumb.org is my own domain, so I know no such filters are in place.

I'm guessing it's a filter at someone else's site...  Ah well, no worries;
the message I sent that triggered the message got through without any

...It could have to do with the downtime experienced by my domain host at
about the time I sent the message.  Not being able to authenticate my
andrew at plumb.org address might have done the trick.

Live and learn. :-) Thanks for the replies!
