  Ron was concerned that there were issues with the email list used by KCC members.

Ian reported that the system was working and it had not been changed recently, except for changes to email addresses.

Ron requested the password to access the archive email. Ian said that he did not keep an archive as each member had all emails on their computers. This was effectively an archive.
