The main distribution mechanism has to remain a mailing list, not a board, forum etc., and we at RT have to keep control over it, for a number of technical, procedural and legal reasons. This matter has been discussed in the past several times. The server our mailing list is running on is a dedicated server, just for us, connected to two different Internet backbones through dual T3 lines, so we have excellent connectivity and performance. According to our email logs delays in email delivery are usually due to problems at the recipient, e.g. congested SMTP servers. If someone subscribes some web forum, board, archive etc. to the list (as has been done with escribe, mail-archive etc. in the past) then this is fine with us. However keep in mind that if the forum or board has its own posting mechanism then mails posted that way usually do not make it back to the main mailing list, so most users (including the staff at RT) won't see those mails. -- Holger Kruse [kruse--nordicglobal--com]
