Description: I occasionally seem to produce messages that can''t be mailed.  Today''s error message "Something went wronge after sending recipients to the Grapevine.  reason': NIL"  I tried--as I have with past instances--to copy the message into a new mail window, but without improved results. '

There is a known bug wherein Lafite fails trying to send messages longer than 2↑16 characters.  Is this your problem?  If not, can you characterize the failed messages in any interesting way?  And do I read you correctly that if it fails once, it fails always (but other messages send ok in the same environment)?'

     These are all short messages.  If it doesn''t send to begin with, it doesn''t help to copy select the message into a new message window and send from there.  It doesn''t happen very often.  I tried PUTting the last such message to a file, but found out, after I had closed my window, that only the last sentence got stored.'
