     You guys miss the point entirely.

     Right now the damnable Google email service is not
accepting my uid or password.  It says this is perfectly
normal but I don't want anyone sending to that address
before it is working properly.
     Some systems will not accept mail that comes from
an address that is not in the contact list.

     So no I am not changing the list address until the
google lets me access my mail by POP.

     Take care.
