I am still getting duplicate mails. To recap, I am subscribed to cctech
one copy of each duplicate is arriving with a cctech
From: address and the
second copy is arriving with a cctalk From: address. I have tried to
unsubscribe from cctalk but I never receive the email asking me to confirm
I wish to unsubscribe, suggesting that I am not subscribed to cctalk.
There have only been a few responses to this thread so it appears that
1) There are very few people experiencing this problem.
2) All cctech subscribers are experiencing it and very few find it a

It doesn't look like this is going to be fixed quickly so I decided it's
to do something before talk of cooking the

of cooking the Christmas turkey. I decided that if I
and subscribe to cctalk, even though I will still get
the off-topic stuff,
should get a lot less mail because the on-topic stuff
should only arrive
which is definately an improvement and will do for
In case I might miss anything important, like someone offering a free IBM
on my doorstep, I decided to subscribe to cctalk
first, wait until I start
getting three copies of everything and then unsubscribe from cctech.
So, I subscribed to cctalk (with the same address I use for cctech which
reflection may not have been a good idea), replied to
and then received the "Welcome to cctalk"
email. However, I have not
getting three copies of anything. Everything is very
much as before, one
copy from from cctalk and usually another some time later from cctech,
presumably after moderator approval.
I thought I was on to something when one message arrived twice from cctalk
twice more from cctech but then I found that it
appears to have been sent
On-Topic Posts <cctech at classiccmp.org>, General at classiccmp.org
Posts <cctalk at classiccmp.org>
so it's arrival here four times is consistent with previous behaviour.
So what next? I get the feeling that if I unsubscribe from cctech, I will
stop receiving anything at all and if I unsubscribe from cctalk, nothing
That is similar to what I am getting, except that I am subscribed to CCTALK.
and have never been subscribed to CCTECH.
Until someone with sufficient Mailman experience comes along, or someone
with a time machine to lend to Jay, I don't think this will be fixed for a
