Matt, and other subscribers, should check the "latest 100 messages" 
archive to see if your message was delivered:

http://www.marxmail.org/maillist.html

In Matt's case, it was delivered:

http://www.marxmail.org/msg80908.html

The reason he did not see it was because gmail does not deliver a 
message *to the sender* when it was posted on a listserv. This was 
discussed the other day. Just look for messages on August 2nd on the 
archive http://archives.econ.utah.edu/archives/marxism/2010w31/date.htm 
  with the heading "test" or "posting to Marxmail from google mail", 
including this one:


for those of you posting to marxmail from google mail, here is a
trick. google will ordinarily filter your own post to the archive
section of your mail account. but if you set your options for marxmail
like so:

you will at least receive an acknowledgment that your post made it to 
the list.

with this email i doth try this myself...
