Problem from earlier today is now happily fixed! Thanks to a listmember
and this list. Plus....
-------- People Noise: -------
Thank heavens for Monday Night Football too. See, the answer to my
question came from another list-members, just minutes after my original
posting, from the same telephone area code as myself. If he is like me,
and I'm assuming a lot with that statement, we're both parked in-front of
computers on this Sunday afternoon as our Steelers are playing on Monday

Actions: I changed above "outgoing" to "different" in the file majordomo.
Below are two examples from /etc/aliaises.
Word wrap warnings. Put blank space between lines for email reading.
Word change warning: "outgoing" changed to "different".

----- end snip of alaises -----
Background: I'm not too sure that it is a necessary measure to change the
name of the digest-outgoing or not. This might be a silly over-kill
measure. None-the-less, I've been able to clean-up some redundancy in my
digest-outgoing alaises and ownerships.
Other insights FWIW: The sprays list is a new concept I'm trying as part
of my name-spectrum of services. Some might call it a "super-list." A
-sprays lists is a read-only list that delivers the postings as they
arrive (unlike digests). Its meant to be a subscriber convenience things
for one button on/off covering most of the essential talk of the subject
