Hosts vanish from the net all the time. If yours does too, it can't be that
bad. As a list manager, I'm going to drop addresses at your host just like
any other address that suddenly becomes unreachable.
I suggest that you *don't* try to help the students who could not follow
instructions to change their subscriptions. It's a waste of your time
and if it is important, they will resubscribe anyway.
