DISCUSS: Reading the Mail

Please, dear gentle, go back and read that message again.  If you have
deleted it, here are the key lines.

         I am unfamiliar with list servers other than my own.  If others work
        differently, please enlighten me.

If you or others read the rest of the message as "I can do this, so why are you 
whining", I apologize. That was not what I intended. I was and am trying to
ask for information as to why it should take two hours to go through the
Atlantia list.  Even on the last few peak days it did not take me two hours
to read everything (and I normally do).
        Will someone please explain, step by step and in simple
non-computerese words, just what it is you have to do to receive, sort, and
read the e-mail on what another poster called 'a dumb mail reader'?
