If people bounce a message every day for a couple weeks, I consider their ISP broken enough to warrant unsubscription.
In my case, it wasn't my ISP, or my server that was at fault. It was the message *senders* mail client that was constructing faulty headers.
Right, but that's Yahoo. That's not Mailman. Mailman is unlikely to be doing this sort of thing. If anything, it would most likely be scrubbing the messages in order to remove illegal formatting.
Really, Mailman is fixing up message header syntax?
I can understand the overall desire in this specific case, but I'm having a hard time painting Mailman with that same brush, which would then reasonably lead to a requirement to make significant changes to the Mailman bounce handling scheme in order to try and guess as to what was the real reason behind a particular type of bounce.
I'm not saying that this isn't something that we shouldn't at least look at seriously, I'm just saying I don't quite buy this particular motivation, at least not as it applies to Mailman.
