Hi Mel or Joyce,

Just one more test to see what works with a different reply to address
than my "from" address with the Clayart listserv...

This time it's "from:" my address and the "Reply
to:" is for my address.

The first one, "From:" and "Reply to:" worked as I'd hoped.
Earlier, I had tried using different "From:" and "Reply to:" addresses
and the post was just "caught in a loop" I think, because the software
couldn't handle a "Reply to:" that wasn't in its subscribers' list.

So, what I did, was subscribe to Clayart with both addresses, then send
from one with the reply to field set as the other. This seems to be
permitted, ie: you have to be subscribed with both addresses.

Obviously, at least one of them needs to be set "No Mail" to avoid
receiving duplicate posts at the subscriber end.
