    The more posts I see from Blueyonder users, the more I think they're
    completely stupid.

    Mind you, this is a statement, and not a question, therefore, you may be
    admitting to it.

  8. I'm not a physicist so I cannot answer that to your level of
    sophistication. The singularities are held in an enclosed magnetic
    field.
    What makes you think I do not acknowledge them?

    In the following message, the mail is delivered to
    <> but the only visible recipient is
    <> who is NOT a real recipient.

    The real recipients of the message are the objects of "rcpt to:"
    commands, NOT the list of addresses in the To: and CC: lines in the
    body (data) part of the message.

    Most email programs have something called "BCC:" (blank carbon copy)
    lines and the addresses on that line are the object of "rcpt to:"
    commands (so the mail goes to them) but do not show up on the visible
    list of recipients.

  10. Similar observation leads me to believe that the ones that fail the
    entry exam for BY end up using NTL. :)

  11. I think that's "blind" (addressees can't be seen), not "blank" (there
    are no addressees).

    Actually, I have a friend who uses Blueyonder, so I cannot apply my
    generalisation to all ;-)
