Unfortunately everyone was. I have unsubscribed the offending user from
the list and will be putting a filter in for cc:Mail in the very near
future since that is the second time in a week it did that to me.

Although this did happen on Thursday, it was cleared up at most sites by
2 PM Central time. I made sure not to unsubscribe anyone who bounced
during that time, and will not do so until Monday.

I appologize for the inconviences this caused everyone. Unfortunately
the cc:Mail started bouncing right after I left work to go get my truck
from the shop. This means I didn't get it actually fixed until Saturday
morning. Luckily I came in to work or it would have been doing it all
