I am still waiting for someone to help with the following problem. I want to 
know how I can have addresses that work rather than the dummy addresses below.

This list according to the blurb on the relevant web site is designed, among 
other things, to assist subscribers with installment problems. There are some 
subscribers on the list who sneer at people who are what are called newbies. 
This, in my view, goes against the entire spirit of the Gnew project. Surely 
if the aim is to make Linux increasingly popular then sneering at newbies etc 
is not good policy. Yet these same sneers have not been able to respond to my 
problem. If they know so much then they should be able to assist. I know that 
people such as Amanda and the manager of the list have been quite helpful. I 
appreciate their efforts.
So if someone would please assist me I would appreciate their efforts.

Warm regards
