On the other hand, if you had chosen "reject with instructions for submitting it correctly" you probably wouldn't be getting requests intended to the automatic mailbox sent to the manual one even after years have passed. I don't have a strong opinion on which we choose for the IRR (it isn't even obvious that the different registries need to do this the same), but we have had good success with few gripes by using the stronger method when we reject NACRs. --Dale -------- Logged at Thu Mar 2 16:19:55 MET 1995 ---------
