Thanks for your reply. Another point to note: if you get a personal 
reply (often you will just see replies on the list, but sometimes people 
will also mail you directly) it is usual to make sure the list gets 
copied in any reply.

I hope you don't mind that I am sending a copy of this message to the 
list, so everyone understands that you are just learning the rules.

regards
  Steve
