Hmmmm....  hschilling is NOT one of the python-announce moderators, so
zir e-mail setup is probably b0rken, accounting for all the problems you
mentioned.  I frequently send e-mail to python-announce, python-list, and
baypiggies with no problems.  It's possible that the wwwsearch list is
malfunctioning if hschilling is one of the moderators for that list.
