Well Don, this is one place I disagree with you (or my practices have 
widely diverged).  I've often used this forum to search for a prior 
message.  Usually it's a case of (I remember reading something 
about...) and looking it up in the archives.  I agree if something is 
important to me, I should make my own copy, but often you don't 
realize something was important to you until later.  In some cases 
the person who submitted something of interest may no longer 
participate in the group, so reissuing a question may not be possible.

I probably do have the nafex message that I'm interested in present 
in my e-mail folders, but searching Yahoo, which only has the nafex 
messages that I'm interested in, is more convenient.

I for one am not unhappy w/ the Yahoo service (unless of course the 
reason for concern that was raised has happened to us).
