For Harmut's information, this group is connected to a mailing list. I have 
always received messages from and sent them to this group by email. When I 
first joined I didn't know it was a newsgroup, but thought it was just a 
mailing list.

I can confirm that the original message, stating it would be cancelled, came 
through. Once sent out there is no way it could be recalled from all the 
recipients. The attempt to cancel had no effect that I could see. No, there 
were no multiple similar messages, just the one as normal.
