    This afternoon I responded to a post on LE support. Later I responded to one
    in TC support. The one sent to TC support has already been sent back to me
    as email; the one to LE support has not yet come back.

    This is really strange. Worse, it easily results in proliferation of
    responses. If someone asks for help, I check whether or not someone else has
    already responded, and will reply only if adequate response has not yet been
    posted. Of course, "posted" to me means "posted and delivered to my
    mailbox". From my observations there are several other users who do the
    same. All of us are likely to respond and waste both our own time and those
    of other users by replies which often are virtually identical in function.

    2nd followup:
    As of 21:22 EST, 6 h 22 min after the email was sent to
    tccle_support@jpsoft.com it still not posted. Messages I posted hours later
    to other JPsoft NGs have long been posted. Does posting a message to a
    specific forum by email require some user to log in into the same forum to
    be "instantly emailed" back to its poster?

    3rd followup:
    As of 10:38 this morning my message from 14:32 yesterday to
    tccle_support@jpsoft.com has not shown up here. Is the subforum dead?
