My recent attempt to post was bounced. Please can I become a member of the list?

I was a member of the old list when it was run by York and I thought I had requested to transfer but I could be mistaken. (Or is it because my 'from' address has changed In any case, please can I be added as a member with the address

Thanks,

Robin.
