Thanks for the tip! I tried it and it worked great! I did have to
specify a time greater than the default 60 seconds and, on my system at
least, the time parameter has the format -t xxx instead of -txxx.
Now this gave me a list of those who receive the messages directly, but
those people who get digests are not their. I would guess that they are
on a different list.
One interesting thing, I thought, was that two of the entries
<disney-comics at ifi.uio.no> and <disney-comics at corp.portal.com> look like
lists in themselves. Now if they feed other lists, there could be quite
a network of list readers out there...
