I sent my subscription mail to www-xsl-fo-request@w3.org and got
an acknowledge message from the server. What I mean with 
"it works without a confirmation-mail" is the confirmation mail
from me to the maillist-server. Without this confirmation-mail
everyone can make a "joke" with somebody and subscribe his/her
mail-address to www-xsl-fo@w3.org. The 5 other maillists
I subscribed need such a confirmation mail from the
maillist-recipient.

Unfortunately the followup-funnction is greyed (not active). Forte
Agent is mostly a news-reader (e.g. with expanded threading features)
and only by the way a mail software. Obviously the software "assumes"
(wrong) it is not possible to followup a mail.


BTW: I guess you live in the United States? - 
I ensure you our deep sympathy and deep compassion from every man and
woman in Germany for the *total* *terrible*, *absulutely* *incredible*
terror-attacks.
