We got it, and at lest 1 reply.  If you didn't get the echo or the reply, 
talk to your ISP.

While I find mailing lists to work well, and the need to log into a forum 
& navigate to the thread you want to read a major PITA and time killer.

My experiments involving adept have been very distastefull, in 2 cases 
resulted in a re-install to sort it out.  So I always revert to synaptic 
in the form of synaptic-pkexec, which is a sudo-like wrapper that gives 
you root rights to run it.  Give it a try.  Once you've sorted out the 
damages adept has done, it Just Works(TM).  Adept apparently is, and has 
been unsupported for several years according to what I've read on other 

Hopefully this will get thru your ISP's filters. You may have to do what 
I did when I was forced to use my ISP's mail server, call up their 
network support guy and setup a whitelist.
