Great work everyone, thanks. Maybe I'll start thinking about
cleaning out my Outlook Express archive folder now.
One note -- archiving the mail on publicly available pages
could potentially open our email addresses up to spam bots.
I wouldn't have thought of it myself by Steve Champeon of
the Webdesign-L mailing list is implementing archives and he
mentioned that as a concern. His solution, although I don't
think it's been implemented is to password protect the
archives and automatically send passwords to those
subscribed to the list.
I already get a ton of spam at this addy, so I'm not that
concerned, and I don't have a way of judging the actual
risk. You might want to ask him for details yourselves, and
you can find the contact info at www.webdesign-l.com
