New plants from Plant Delights: MAIL LOOP?

Dear Louise,

Much thanks for your suggestion. I have done as you advised and will now
wait and keep my fingers crossed.  I did check with my university computer
center and they said others in the university had reported the same problem
earlier this week.  Their response was to reboot our server.  This
presumably will correct a timing problem that is causing the repeat
messaging. As they put it, the server keeps trying to send me the message
and it encounters a busy signal so it tries again.  They said to wait and
the problem would eventually go away.  But I've been waiting ...

It isn't a big deal but I would much rather read the 25 messages today
on Alpine-L and read the plant catalogs than keep deleting messages ...
Anyway my arisaema wallichiana have finally stuck their pointed heads out of
the soil in their pots, the last of the bunch that came out of my fridge a
few months back.  I was waiting for those buggers ...

Thanks again!
