Which requires I go thru the whole procedure of firing up a browser, 
locating the archive on the web etc so I can go searching for it, wasting 
at least 5 to 10 minutes.  If gmail would just return the echo, the rest of 
my scripts would simply sort it to the list folder where it is instantly 
visible with no action on my part.  If gmail wants to be the back end of a 
horse by doing that, I guess that is their choice, so mine is not to use 
it.  And I will continue to point this out every time someone says they 
can't see their own posts.  gmail use is the problem about 75% of the time, 
and its not list specific, its gmail specific.
