I have also received several messages addressed to r-help-archive at googlegroups.com.
I junked most of these.

I have not tried to reply to any of these messages.
I did send a message some time ago to a poster on  r-help-archive at googlegroups.com to stop doing this and to use the official help.
Apparently to no avail.

Seems like a good idea to give these mails the same treatment as stuff from nabble.
