Notice, that when you open your daily ILW.COM news latter, the sender's name and email address is displayed like this: "Immigration Daily from ILW.COM []". But after you clicked on the button "Reply", the destination email address displays this: "" The reason for you not being able to send messages to ILW.COM by just simply clicking on REPLY and SEND because the "listserv" email address won't accept any incoming messages. If you want to send a message to ID, you have to manually enter the right email address ( in the field "To:" or add this email address to your Contacts (Address book), and send your message to ILW.COM by starting out from a new message.
