Not as far as I could tell, when I was subscribed via the eGroups
interface. All it did was send me a Subject line summary of what had
been posted that day, presumably so I could then go to the web site
and read the messages (and be inundated by their banner ads). I
received nothing from this list directly, despite having the "read
the list through email" option turned on.
