Dear Daniel,
I'm sorry to hear about this loss of files.
I think you have a great site and I hope you will recover soon.

Take care,

The other day lots of files were wiped out (see on
server hosting this mailing list. Among other things, the list of
and their configs wanished.

As always, you find out backup problems once you want to actually
restore lost
data and this was no exception. The mailing list data simply wasn't
backed up
on the server.

I have managed to process certain logs that weren't erased and restored
hundred addresses, but I know there are many that I have missed
those who subscribed a long time ago).

These addresses have been added, but NOTE NOTE NOTE that these were
added with
the default settings. So if you read the mails as 'digest' before, or
were using other config settings you must now go to the curl-users setup
and modify your preferences again (and do ask for your password then,
since it
has of course been reset to a new one).

These restore work conditions also apply to all other mailing lists we
host on
the server. If you were subscribed to any other mailing
there, you may need to resubscribe.

It will take several more days before everything is back to semi-normal
Please have patience.

More details and progress reports will be available on the curl site.
