Barb - If you will look at messages from earlier today, you'll see one
from Mr. Bauman. Unfortunately, he sent a humongous message out to the
listserv by accident. Here is his explanation. (BTW, Jim, this came
across MUCH better.)

Subject: A message from the world-record holder--Mr. Big Sig
I never dreamed I'd be in the techwhirlers' Hall of Infamy!
This message is a test to see if I'm the cause of the problem or just a
victim of coincidence. My suspicions and my typical life experiences
me to believe the former, unfortunately. If this message results in
another light-year long message, my sincere apologies. This message was
made from a new stationery file in Lotus Notes. I threw away the old
in case that was the problem---yet, I'd never had a problem with it
I'm crossing my fingers before I send this out!
