Sigh. It is completely possible that one of the mailman rules drops the
mail. It is also a fact that I don't care and that any time spent on
investigating the problem is *a complete waste of time* (thus the "Sigh"
at the beginning of my answer, which in and by itself feels like a waste
Let me just give you a picture of what happended:
You have a bank where they have some sort of mailbox where you can deposit
money transaction orders in case you come at non opening hours.
One day you come along and want to put a large envelope in there with
lots and lots of orders. It's so big that it doesn't fit into the
mailbox slot. There's also a sign saying that the bank has moved and
that it isn't doing any further business in this area and it isn't
looking into this specific mailbox any more. That's the moment when you
come into the play and complain that your envelope doesn't fit into the
mailbox slot - not caring that *even if you managed to get the envelope
in there* the bank wouldn't receive that envelope.
So, please send your mail to the new address, and in case that the new
setup still has the problem *then* please report it for the new site and
we will investigate - we have a very good record of caring about that
kind of problems. So, just to return the courtesy to you: Thanks for
reporting a non-problem.

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
