I am sure I speak for many when I say:
Again, thank you for all your excellent work to keep this valuable
available to us all, and for keeping us informed as to what's going on
in this regard. I am sure I am only one of a large number who greatly
appreciates all your fine work.

Subject: Bounced email appology...
One of the unfortunately side-effects of mailing lists happened over
last week and particularly the weekend.
Early last week, a member of the list on a cc:Mail server had his
server start bouncing mail back to the list. Fortunately I caught this
quickly and removed the offending user so it wouldn't continue.
On Friday shortly after I left work, another member of the list on a
different cc:Mail server had their server start bouncing mail back to
the list. Unfortunately this was not caught until about 7:30 on
Saturday morning when I removed them from the list.
On Saturday afternoon/evening, a third member of the list on yet
another cc:Mail server had their server start bouncing mail back to
the list due to the user no longer being valid. Unfortunately this was
not caught until about 7:00 on Monday morning when I removed them from
This was caused due to the fact that cc:Mail sends mail back to the
Reply-To header and not the Error-To header. I have modified the
Majordomo script to ignore all cc:Mail headers in the future. Time
will only tell if it worked.
I appologize for all of the inconviences this caused over the weekend.
Fortunately only the cc:Mail servers bounced email messages or it
would have been truly horrific for everyone. (I personally recieved
over 1000 messages due to mailboxes being full in addition to the
Phelim "Pug" Gervase | "I want to be called. COTTONTIPS. There is
Barony of Bryn Gwlad | graceful about that lady. A young woman bursting
House Flaming Dog | vigor. She blinked at the sudden light. She
pug at pug.net | beautiful poems. When ever shall we meet again?"
