It can't be ibiblio, Jerry. I just checked your account and everything is
normal as it has been all along. Again: when you send email from Gmail to
the nafex list Gmail stores that email in Sent Mail folder. _That_ is your
copy of the email you sent to the list; ibiblio will not send you another
giving you a duplicate. So, look in your Gmail Sent Mail folder for all the
posts you send to this list through Gmail and you will find everything
there. Something else you need to do is:

1) not allow Gmail to sort your email and organize your folders
2) fix this by going to your inbox, clicking on the little star/flower/gear
icon on the far right, left click once and then click on 'settings'
3) then at the top string of menu options click on Inbox
4) then do the following:
a) make sure Inbox Type is 'Default' and not anything else
b) make sure the Categories is set to 'Inbox' - put a check in the
Inbox checkbox
This way all your email goes to Inbox only until you create filter Labels
or mark individual email
as Important and/or Starred

Than can not happen now. I have set the maximum size limit for an attached
or inline message to twenty megabytes (20 MB) and the list is configured to
allow attachments of several types, including .PDF's, images, Text Files of
various types including RTF's, Word documents an of course plain ascii text
files. If anyone has difficulty sent attachments of those types please let
me know so I can fix the problem. If you send a form, i.e. registration, as
an attachment it should (will) come through to all recipients in its
original form, unchanged by ibiblio or Gmail.

It doesn't work that way.

1) check your Gmail Sent Mail folder
2) reconfigure your Inbox in Gmail Settings as described above
or do 2), then 1)
