Error during command authentication.
Error - unable to initiate communication with LISTSERV (errno=111). The server is probably not started.
Given the high error rates and mutes I find on older DATs not stored under ideal conditions, I'd be hesitant to run at faster than real-time, the tought being that even more errors and mutes might result.
