That could explain why it's not been working before. Many thanks.

As a follow on, can I specify a group name in the Correspondents field
when creating a ticket?

For blocks I need to send the request to several people. If I send it to
an external mailing list, the reply will come back from an individual,
so the transaction Creator won't match the Requestor.

I'd like to avoid typing a list of e-mail addresses every time we create
a block!
