Subject: FLASH: ADMIN: Bouncing Mail
From: Sam Michel

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for the silence, as you're all aware a mail loop occured on the list
sometime in the last few hours. Hopefully it is all straightened out now,
and you shouldn't receive any more email like this. I can only apologise
for the nightmarish stream of ever increasing bounces that some of you

Just to let you know that there are a whole range of filters set up on the
mailing list to try and prevent this type of thing happening (as any of you
who accidentally have sent Unsubscribe messages to the list address will
have found out). The format the bounced email turned up in, was different
to any that have occurred before and slipped through the net.

I have updated filters accordingly across all the lists to stop this
happening again. It was also exacerbated by the setup of the offender's
email system, which handled bounced messages incorrectly. Instead of
pointing them to the error address, they were sent right back to the list.

Thank you for your patience, normal service now resumes...
