FAQ
I have a member of a list who attempted to reply to a posting to one
of my lists and her reply went to the -bounces address instead of to
the address in the From field of the message that she should have
received. Here is a header fragment of what see sent.


To: <pta-board-bounces at lists.shepard-families.org>
Message-id: <0JN000JJK4V8O8YA at vms044.mailsrvcs.net>
MIME-version: 1.0
X-MIMEOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2600.0000
X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook, Build 11.0.5510
Content-type: multipart/alternative;
boundary="----=_NextPart_000_0006_01C7E1E8.D4BDA890"
Thread-index: AcfiEr1Ir6dhRiUeQQ+HOAlSF6YEwg==

She doesn't know what she did. In fact she has asked me what she did
wrong.

The list is a perfectly ordinary list with no reply-to manipulation
or the like. And the message that she replied to others have
successfully replied to without problem.

I really don't think that she's behind some stupid gateway that is
mangling incoming mail. She has a perfectly normal verizon.net address.

Does anyone know how an Outhouse user could have managed to reply to
the -bounces address? It strikes me that that would take a special
effort.

    This is just one more manifestation of the issue discussed at
