Those of you with email addresses will
not lose any email because of the switch. Although
the list server, majordomo, will at some point be down,
your ability to receive and send mail will not.

However, at some point, when your account has been
switched over, you may have email left on the old
server. After the switch, all
addresses will be sent instructions for retrieving
left over mail on the old server (its a 5 minute
procedure that works with any email software and is
non technical).

Just installed a 4" kit in my 99 250 v10 along with dual front
shocks and pro-comp stabilizer Mon. I'll put my new Weld 16.5
x 12 rims with MT baja's 37 x14.5 x 16.5 on and watch my
mileage drop below 7 mpg
