Subject: Re: [chairs] email problems

Hi Werner and Ken,

  My message was concerning the server that handles OASIS staff mail -
that is, anything addressed to {somenamehere}@oasis-open.org. List mail
(anything that looks like {listname}@lists.oasis-open.org is handled by
different hardware located offsite (along with Kavi and other related
applications). That said, while the problems are unrelated, they are
certainly real problems and should be reported. I'm forwarding these
messages along to our sysadmin ; if anyone else has noticed any problems
please feel free to contact me or Scott McGrath directly.
