Thanks for the quick and (very) detailed response.

Again, I cannot understand why they'd want it to work that way. And  
if it's true that it worked that way on their old host, someone  
must've made those customizations for them.

As is typical with many clients, they think their users are  
borderline retarded. To have a full archive, but only email people  
original posts defeats the purpose of having a discussion list, in my  

I told them if they wanted this functionality, they should just  
install a forum :)

Thanks again,
