Ah, you will find the archives at

to be helpful with both questions!

It is important to mention use fo the Archives now because if people are not postiing on the web instead of by email and are not reading on the web instead of by email then the delays between initial writing and appearance have been as long as 12 days, though usually about 6 days. (Orange, which recently bought Smartgroups, has not replied to us about this but in their general website they mention huge amounts of spam mail as the cause again.)

brings up 11 posts:

The instruction on use are right on the main page and it is safe to play around with variations on your search.
