First of all - please never write to the mailinglist to contact the
postmaster - always contact the postmaster directly at
<postmaster at>. Your chances of reaching the postmaster are
infinitely greater and it reduces clutter. You should really never ever
have to write stuff like this to the mailinglist.


I have replied to you before directly! Here was what I wrote to you:


it seems you weren't subscribed to xfce at _at all_ yet, so I've
just subscribed you. Once you are subscribed, you can have the system
send you a password reminder and so thus always recover your mailman


Also, if my mail never reached you then you should contact your own ISP - my mailserver shows that my messages to you are succesfully delivered to your ISP as well - so I cannot help you any more than that! Everything on this side seems to be working ok: your mail arrives, you receive mailinglist mails, etc.

please only use the postmaster address for future discussion of this issue. Thanks.
