Announcement: Outbound Mail Delivery Broken

We are having a problem with our mail service provider. Inbound mail is working but outbound mail -- specifically for mailing the Digest -- is not working and we know it. Sorry!!! Please bear with us. In the meantime, I will endeavor to keep the MMD website up-to-date with updates DAILY.

Please visit the MMD Archives! Thank you -- Jody

Parcels & UK Customs Examination
By John Farrell

Joyce Brite discussed some shipping classes employed by UPS and FedEx.
I should warn my fellow British residents that every time I have used
FedEx to import goods from USA the package has been subjected to
Customs examination, invariably incurring a hefty financial penalty
(sometimes in excess of the value of the contents).  Only rarely does
this happen if the package is sent through regular Post Office
channels.

I now tell my American suppliers not to use FedEx when sending packages
to me.
