A few days ago, I created a Rootsweb account, according to the instructions I received in an e-mail claiming that Rootsweb is back. I sent one message to firstname.lastname@example.org as a test, and never received the message, even though my list of subscribed groups still includes Gen-medieval. A check of the list "archives" currently shows a total of two messages, mine and one other. This does not necessarily contradict the claim that bringing back the old archives is in the works, but I would have still expected more than two. Has anybody else signed up at Rootsweb and sent a message to Gen-medieval in the last couple of weeks, or is everyone else just using soc.genealogy.medieval? In any case, the gateway between the two is still broken.
Today, I finally gave up and created a Google account (something I was hoping to avoid) so that I can participate in Google Groups. Is there any chance that the gateway will be fixed in the forseeable future?
