Hello Francesco,

Subscribing to the chimera-users mailing list and registering as a  
chimera user are two different things.  Neither are required to keep  
using Chimera, although after several uses it "encourages" you to  

Maybe you signed up for chimera-users mail previously, and then when  
you registered, you also chose the option to sign up for this mailing  
list again (it might be on by default).  I only say that because you  
said you were already subscribed on a personal basis.  I doubt there  
is any reason for concern.
