You need to acclimate yourself to the environment/culture of FLOSS
mailing lists. First, don't be giddy. Responses to users will rarely
be immediate. People, both devs and fellow users, contribute help on an
"as time permits" basis. You are not paying for support here. I've
seen some msgs go unanswered for a week or more, both initial requests
and follow ups. I short, don't expect rapid responses and individual

Regarding what you think may be lost mail, using an office document
format is not wise, though I don't know if it's allowed here or not. In
general, with FLOSS lists, use plain text, always, whether inline or
attachment. Try not to reference external links as this list is
archived by many sites. Get it all in the archives.
Finally, if you sent me a direct email and my server rejected it you
would receive an NDR pretty quickly. And I don't see any msgs from you
in my spam tagged folder.
