Fw: failure notice

Now, this is interesting.  I don't mind, in the slightest, there
not being a 'webmaster' at any particular domain - I am sure that
the activies of spammers have managed to make the lives of such
people a misery.

What is a bit of a bugger is when I have cut and pasted an email
address from a web page and it bounces.  You advertise
'webmaster at kde.org' on your contact page
http://www.kde.org/contact.html .  But it bounces  - see below.
It does not bounce because it does not exist - it bounces because
you don't like me.

I'm only trying to pass on some broken links - why don't you like
me?  Is it because I use a mail address from mail.com?

I'm going to send this from a different mail account, and copy it
to the UK name on the contact page in case it bounces again - I
hope he won't mind passing it on.

bobharvey at laurentian.fsworld.co.uk or bobharvey at lineone.net if
you are feeling a bit out of sorts with mail.com}

'KDE2.2.2 (Older)' there is a line: 'SuSE Linux 7.2 (README,
noarch, i386, HP/Intel IA-64)'.  The README link seems to think
it's going to http://download.kde.org/stable/2.2.2/SuSE/README ,
but it's wrong.
