Thank you.  I think you made an excellent choice in how to manage this.

May I make one small suggestion?  Would it be possible and easy to set
the "Reply-To" field of a non-subscriber post to the non-subscriber's
email address rather than your email address?  As it now is, you're
to get some extra mail that was intended for non-subscribers.

I hope that I post this from the right address because I read Team-Ada
both at home and at work!
