Right. I thought the links were pointing to other files on the same
CD. Obviously linking to a second cd from the first isn't possible.

hmm... My good ideas weren't very good. Next?

I'm not sure but... I'm using PINE, and the roles on that work fine for
all the lists I'm on; I have about 10 different addresses, all have been
set up in this one pine config, and I can post to lists under them all
without bounces. I assume PC-PINE has the same functionality. I believe
roles were introduced to Pine in 4.10, but 4.21 has a lot better role
handling, so go for a recent version. I can't remember the location of
PC-PINE downloads, but it's prolly linked to from www.washington.edu/pine/
Let me know off list if you need a hand setting the roles up.
