Re: [IPk] Apidra query



Hi Marian
Don't worry, if you send to this list using the wrong address, the 
message bounces to the administrator and we deal with it (usually by 
writing to the person to check what's going on).
So in this case I was about to write and ask which address you wanted to 
use, but I won't bother now!
Please everyone note this: if you have more than one email address, 
check you're sending to the list from the address that you're subscribed 
with, otherwise it won't work. If you don't see your message coming 
through to the list, it's worth checking that.
