Mail Issues

You probably already know we have had some email issues lately on the intergroup list, including another one tonight. I believe the root cause is too many invalid, old, or otherwise no longer needed email addresses on the list. If you received an email similar to the one below and wish to be added back to the list just respond to the email without changing anything and the system daemons will do the rest.
