The old archive is dominated by spam for a long period, but the thread index is somewhat useful. I presume it only goes back to 1998 or so, though I am not sure.

Thank you very much.

Seems to date back to aug 1999. It's something, but I still think it's a shame that the wealth of invaluable information accumulated all these years seems lost. I mean, if one needs to interpret some exotic TIFF that most probably was investigated discussed thoroughly years back by knowledgable people like yourself and Marti Maria, for example, where is one supposed to find that information? Such a shame if all that hard word and knowledge is truely lost.

I wouldn't mind helping compiling a new archive. I mean like, maybe, collecting personal archives some people must have, eliminating duplicates, eliminating things more related to viagra then TIFF, and putting it on-line. Is this an option?

Anyway, thanks for the link, it does help!

I believe I have most TIFF mailing list e-mails since 11/96. I don't know how complete they are, or how well-filtered they are for spam. Let me know if you want them.
