I'm sorry to hear of the problems. And Thank You for leting me know.
Since I cannot follow all the traffic in the world it is important that
you report this kind of events to me (as long as the
rp-ml's are coming to me it's really hard to see if there's any problems).

The only ones that I know of are the ones that were constantly out of
reach (unknown addresses). Any others kicked out that I should know of?

Occasionally the original ones are delivered later than the replays...
that's the kind of email mystique that happens every day. But if you
really do not receive the original message at all... Well that is a bit
annoying (and a problem).

That's odd... I looked through the 284megs of logfiles and couldn't
find any indication that your address shouldn't have all the messages -
one or two minor delays, but other than that - no problems. I wonder
where the messages have disappeared. I'll have to ask some1 wiser than

I know that some of the mailservers, such as started to
treat as a source of spams - perhaps due to the amount of
traffic (or then some friendly, but dummy, soul has reported it as a
source and got us to the black list...) That may be the case in
some organizations.

Yeah, does anyone have a clue?
