But there is a better way. Include a header in the post

Urgent: <password>

where <password> is the list admin or moderator password and the post
will be sent to all list members regardless of topic filters, delivery
status or regular/digest.

Note that this must be a message header. putting it in the body will
only result in the password being sent to the list.

Martin used Thunderbird to send the OP. See
<http://kb.mozillazine.org/Custom_headers> for information on adding
custom headers with Thunderbird, and if you need additional help, see
