+ Your message may have just been lost in the network for any number
of reasons. It does happen. The system isn't 100% reliable.

+ You are using broken chains or stale remailer keys.

+ Your source address or domain is being blocked by the first remailer
in your chain.

+ Your destination address, domain, or newsgroup is being blocked by
the last remailer in your chain.

+ The Usenet group you are posting to is not available on the news
server or gateway being used by the last remailer in your chain.

+ You are trying to crosspost to too many newsgroups and the final
remailer in your chain discarded the message. Send a blank email to
the remailer with 'remailer-conf' as the subject to determine how many
newsgroups the remailer allows you to cross-post to. Spammers abuse
the cross posting option so operators are cutting back to 3 or 4 cross
posts to deter the spammers.

+ You have too many addresses in the To, Cc, or Bcc headers and the
final remailer in your chain discarded the message.

+ You attempted to send an anonymous message to a nym that is
configured to either reject Bcc messages (directive +nobcc) or not
accept any mail at all.

+ Your e-mail recipient is filtering out messages from anonymous
remailers.

+ You are simply having a bad day. 'Better luck tomorrow!

RProcess, the author of JBN2 and the Reliable Remailer, has
systematically examined why so many anon messages seem to disappear.
His conclusions [http://www.bigfoot.com/~potatoware/PSKB-035.html] are
quite provocative.
