Hi All, Just thought I'd let you know that I did receive quite a few responses, and almost no one had the same concerns that I did for privacy. (Which feels weird because i don't think of myself as a terribly private person, but publishing my email correspondence on the web seems to be a hot button for me.) People made good points about the archives serving as a valuable resource to the public and that less people would see them if they were for subscribers only.
