Post all of your queries, comments, or messages to They will appear on both the single and digest mode lists. This email address is the ONLY one that will work to post your messages to the list!

You have two options for joining and receiving message traffic:

  1. SINGLE MODE (you will receive each message individually as they are submitted) - send an email message to
