[ntp:questions] Trying to reply to an NTP Questions request I get this

FWIIW, ever since NTP.org transferred its email lists from ISC I have received a tiny fraction of the NTP-related email that I had in the past. For example, now I see two or three requests for assistance a month, whereas in the past there were 2-3 a day. Also, I only see bug reports when Perlinger or Stenn announce the bugs are fixed, and never the original requests. Although for me this is a huge timesaver, I am assuming that there may be something broken with the way NTP email is being handled now.

Thanks for your comments. As a major ISP, I would expect Virgin Media (a.k.a. blueyonder) to get things right - if only! Yes, I simply used my blueyonder e-mail which has worked without issue in the past. I've been advised to use a gmail address instead which I've now done, and await to see whether I now get two copies of the messages.
I did try to contact the list manager (johnl at .....) but mail to him got a "retry timeout exceeded"! What a mess!
