[Talk] Saving wasted postage

I receive the mail at the AUUG office.  I have double checked our database
and there is only one entry for you (as is the case with all members).  The 
only address I have for you on that database is the one..."P.O. Box...."

As with AUUGN etc AUUG mail is only sent to that list, so you should only 
receive one copy.  The only exception was recently when the conference 
brochure was mailed  - I included some other lists - ie past conference attendees,
and such, who were non-members, so that we could reach a larger audience.

That said, I have checked the labels used for the conference brochure, and yes
you were on another list- as a past conference attendee- I had aimed to delete
all members from these labels - obviously yours slipped through.

Feel free to contact me off-line, and I will be happy to go through your membership
details which I have on record for you.

Let me know if you are having problems with the auugannounce list and recieving 
more than one copy.  My records show that I updated your details on 15 Jan 01 -
I included a new email address and deleted an old one.
