      Dear Edmund,

      Your email was not so much a victim of Yahoo anti-spam but of Yahoo! groups potential spam. Any messages thus marked are held for approval by the moderator, i.e. me - and I very rarely check the group unless something is flagged for my attention, which this wasn't. I only found out about it by chance.

      Edmund, I am sorry if I was not able to get your message posted in time. I see this has caused distress to you and would like to assure you that no malicious intent was intended.

      Obviously, I should check for similar emails more often from now on and not wait for any messgae from Yahoo.

      With Best Wishes
