In fact, i don't know if the trouble is really the delay between two posts.

I make a test with 4 mails with 30 s of delay between each.
only the second mail is lost.

Blfs is very active and it is very good. it is a pleasure to have the 
last version of packages... but it is more hard to translate it in french.
So, my project is to make a script that analyse the commit mail of the 
BLFS-BOOK list. The script make some changes
automatically ( for exemple, MD5 sum change, SBU number, ...) and send 
us on the list (lfs-frtraduc) the filtered commit.
Currently to test it, the script don't make changes.
the script send to the lfs-frtraduc the commit mails from the blfs-book 

when i test my script, some mails are not sent by the list. I send me a 
copy on another address and i receive these mails.

Perhaps a trouble with the spamassassin HTML filter. The rules of this 
filter are the same for all the list (including blfs-book ?)
