Subject:Help!! From:"Doug, Data Librarian at Ext 4225" <engstromdd -at- PHIBRED -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 30 Mar 1994 11:39:17 -0600
I would appreciate assistance from a carbon-based life form; the mailer daemeon
and I are not involved in a very constructive dialog.
While attempting to re-send a message, I received the follwing message, and I
have no idea what to do about it. My previous attempts at re-send generated
similar messages. The message was sent as a reply to another, so I know this
user is out there.
PS Sorry for using the "mass send" on this, but I don't know how to get in
touch with a sysop (or whatever they're called on Internet).

Subject: Trying to resend
I'm trying to resend a message to your address; I keep hitting various error
messages. In your original message, I think the subject line said that QMGATE
expected something, but it was truncated so I can't tell what. Please tell me
what to do to resend successfully.
