I've missed a lot of HistoNet messages lately, but could someone 
please give all of us chapter and verse for this Michele's fixative? 
What's in it, and what's it used for, and where is the published
evidence for its merits relative to other fixatives?

Sorry if I'm repeating a well-worn theme. If the answers are
all in the archives, let me and all others know!  Our universiy's
computer dept has now repealed its exclusion of and many 
other university servers that would not (if I understand it rightly) 
spend about $1500 a year to meet the ORB standards for refusing
to relay spam. Here we were almost completely free of spam while
the exclusion was in force. If every server cleaned up its open
relays and passed the ORB test we would all get better service.

If you've read this far and forgotten, this message's principal
purpose is to ask for the recipe for Michelse's fixative, with
references.  Enough said!
