I just got a warning from firstname.lastname@example.org, telling
me that some messages bounced when ezmlm tried to deliver them..
Below is the complete warning, at the end of the mail you'll find the
reason. I'm going to paste it for all guys too lazy to scroll =)
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at tigris.org.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
220.127.116.11 failed after I sent the message.

Well - YES, I won't accept worms as eMail. Thanks for pointing out
that I got two again, ezmlm. Glad to know..
Seriously: Is anyone actively maintaining this mailing list? Is it
possible to stop accept this worms for the ml completely (clamav,
whatever)? How is this bouncing bad for my list account? Is it reset
to zero bounces regularly? Or am I unsubscribed when I bounce the
next worm that some jerk sends to this list?
Sorry - I'm just unsure about the proper handling. I can either
unsubscribe and don't worry (web-archive or something related has the
same infos, nevertheless) or stay subscribed and still don't accept
virii, worms, trojans, windows executables etc.
Is there a policy? Any comment from a project-/list-maintainer?
Thanks in advance,
