mail duplication and resolution

Hi there,

On Wednesday, 1 September, the <geometry-institutes> mailing list
experienced an e-mail duplication problem that caused repeated group
postings bearing the subject line "Re: Algebra II sites." Through analysis
and experimentation, the Math Forum has since identified that that looping
problem was caused by one off-site subscriber's faulty e-mail relaying. We
have unsubscribed that account from the list, and have contacted the
off-site postmaster to resolve the problem on their server.

The Math Forum wishes to reassure you that this mail duplication was not
our programmatic error; and that posting to the list will not cause further

Please take this unfortunate incident as a cue to consult with your
postmaster about any mail forwarding of your own accounts. Keeping track of
which old accounts forward to your new accounts helps us research problems
with mailing lists and subscriptions to them.

Documentation about the <geometry-institutes> list remains on the web
(, and
available via MajorDomo list manager (e-mail
<> with only the text info
geometry-institutes ). Please contact
<> with any further questions.

We regret the inconvenience; and thank you for your patience.
