Hello Ray,

I've had similar problems with the list server when I tried to send it
commands a few months ago. I tried in the first week of June. It would
just repeatedly not take my command. What is the command to conceal
your email address? I wasn't aware that there was such a command. Does
anybody have that command at their fingertips or do I have to go look
that up? Are you sure you are not talking about concealing your email
on the list of subscribers that you can request sent to you sorted by
name, country, or email server? That capability I am aware of.
