Tsk, tsk! No, you don't! I wrote an application that you can use to avoid all
of the scrolling! I even made the core functionality freeware, as a service to
the TECHWR-L community (though, it also works with other mailing lists, too).

You can read more about it (and download it) at:

One person reported having problems with the program since we moved to Lyris.
If you (or anyone else on this list) experience problems, let me know, and I
