My thread got responses from Thomas de Groot and others, but while I can
easily start a thread, i cannot answer to anyone. Each time i try to
respond, I get the following error message:

____________________________________________________________
An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded:
5.7.1 <XXX### [at] yahoocom>: Sender address rejected: illegal sender domain.
Please check the message recipient "XXX### [at] degrootorg" and try again.
____________________________________________________________

(With the "XXX" I replaced the original e-mail addresses.)
I use the Mozilla Thunderbird as e-mail client. What do I have to
change? Help needed. i want to be able to communicate again with everyone.

Sven

It looks like you are trying to send a personal email to Thomas(?), rather than
'replying' here in the POV-Ray newsgroups (so that all of us can see it.)

Try posting a 'reply' here, to see if that works.

And do not "Reply All" that will give the same or similar fail message.

I forgot to mention that I'm using Firefox to view the newsgroups, not a
newsreader like Thunderbird. Maybe there's something about Thunderbird that's
part of the problem(?)

I'm using Thunderbird. It can be a bit iffy, yesterday it marked a 
couple of newsgroups as unread.

Interestingly enough, yesterday I had trouble posting one reply with T'bird,
too; didn't find the time to investigate the cause though.

Maybe Mozilla (or whoever is now in charge of the T'bird project) have swapped
reply buttons around again or some such, to once again make us accidently reply
via email rather than nntp.

Some readers that combine mail and news use "reply" to "reply via e-mail" 
and "follow-up" (or similar) to send a reply to the newsgroup.

Thanks for all the answers. Now (right now) I am trying the "Follow Up"
button and hope, I can place this reply. Means: if you see this message,
and you couldn't reply to threads using the "Reply" button, you can use
the "Follow Up" button instead. I hope it works. So many interesting
postings here to reply to...
