        Note that a mail exploder doesn't necessarily need a
lot of processing so much as a good network connection.  If
Obscure's connection had been on a T1, we probably would never
have noticed any added load, because it could clear the queue
much faster.

        Accordingly, 486 and greater class machines that are
on a T1 line or greater should be able to handle just about
any of the domains (including .com, .net, and .edu).  Please
ask your local mail gurus to see if you can help bring the
list back online.  At this point we can continue to provide
the management, but we can't commit the resources to continue
the list by ourselves.
