In regard to your 2) I had to consider that the EC reflector recently had not been functioning correctly. Indeed Paul earlier had me make a contact in order to "fix" the relector.

Would you have preferred that 802's view was not submitted?

we have proof of loss rather than delay of mail then we need a different
