Dear All,

Is anybody else seeing significant delays in mail delivery with NAMD's
mailing list, or is it just us ? For example, the following is an excerpt
from the header of a recent message to the list showing a 24-hour delay
for the trip from US to Greece (FedEx would have been faster) :

..

Our mailer implements the, so-called, 'graylisting'. Could this be it ?

Apologies for the off-topic message,
Nicholas
