thanks for the help, y'all... i figured out that when they switched my email to a new server last month they added a filter that they didn't tell me about, nor did i have access to it. couldn't see it even when i went looking for it - and i'm not a computer moron. just got a hold of my admin and got 64 valid emails forwarded to me! several from the artery... *sigh*. fortunately, we also have a theme camp affiliation as indiviuals (not the project) and can get in that way.
thanks for lookin!
