Although in practice you get more than one per day when the list is busy - - I think it one per day or every 25 messages, whichever comes first, based on how messages from the two HW lists seem to arrive

There is also the issue that not everyone who can receive e-mail can necessarily (easily) access the web to retrieve such files

I still think the lack of an option to retrieve old messages, except by reading them individually on line is a bit of a drawback...

I was interested to see That Loren's poll seems to have drawn mainly negative responses, despite the fact that you need to subscribe to E-  to vote...
