As Dennis Benson recently posted, we did experience some
problems with the ncbi machine (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) this
weekend, and we unfortunatly also had unrelated trouble with
our Entrez server.  The problem with the ncbi machine meant
that all mail sent to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov would not operate for
the affected period, but all of these things are now fixed, 
and are in fine working order now.

Please do not hesitate to let us know if there are 
any other problems.

regards,

francis
