    Re: The List Status and what might go wrong
    From: Dave Weilacher

    The fatal flaw of computers and programs is their total lack of intuition.
    So with typical sherlock holmes logic, here is a possible scenario.
    I post a msg to the nav-l list.
    The nav-l mail server attempts to resolve all the addresses it mails to.
    Some of the domains it copies have set up very un-intuitive spam blocking.
    The domain blocks the message.
    It notifies the mail server which notifies the email list app.
    That app is designed to deal with individual address bounces but not domain level bounces.
    Afterwhile, someone figures out on the receiving domain that good stuff is being bounced with the bad.
    They fix the problem.
    In this scenario, it is actually the receiving ISP that is likely to have caused the problem.
    Scince the web is nueral in design, it may have only blocked mail that was 
    delivered via a particular route
