My sincere apologies for sending an encrypted email to the list
however since I unsubscribed from the list yesterday at the Yahoo site I
in error I made a reply to welcome a new member to another email group
which I though was PGPnet.

This in part may explain why this is happening frequently.  By rights I
should not be getting emails anymore from the group. I will leave the
solution to the situation in your capable hands.
