I guess this bears repeating, since I'm still getting similar queries. 
So, see my post of March 22, below, then see Mike Jankulak's
(co-Administrator) March 23 post to a user who still had problems. 
Bottom line:  check your configuration by logging on the bottom of the
main Coral-List page, here,


See all previous posts (archives) here:


If you still aren't getting copies of your own posts, but you want to,
you probably have a Gmail account, and there's nothing we can do to fix
that.  If you are STILL having problems, please let us know.

I hope you have a glorious day!

For some reason, we've been getting a lot of these lately.

Some of you may have configured your subscription so that you do not
receive copies of what you posted.  To configure your subscription how
you want it, log on to the bottom of this page,


....where it says, "To unsubscribe, etc." put in your email address and 
you can then edit your options.

And/or, go to the archives, here,


and check to see there if your post made it to the list.

Finally, if you still can't figure it out, it may be that you posted
your message from an address different from that from which you are
subscribed.  This happens rather often.  You might be having your email
forwarded from a different address, or perhaps you originally signed on
as, say, jake at email.greatuniversity.edu but you're trying to send your
email from jake at greatuniversity.edu.

Finally, for the impatient, be advised that posts do not go out as you
send them.  They stack up in a queue which we read/scan and decide
whether to let them go to the list or not.  None of us usually checks
the queue on the weekend (in the USA).

I really, really hope this helps.
