[Mailman-Users] Strange Problem.

I just recently converted our site over from Majordomo to Mailman. So far,
everything is fantastic and everyone here loves it.

However, I'm having a small problem.

We have an admin account on one of our machines that runs a custom email
generation application, unrelated to anything going on with mailman. The
account that the application runs under is called 'mrxadmin'. The mrxadmin
account has a .foward file which forwards email to 'webmaster at goingv.com',
which is a mailman list.

For some strange reason I keep getting these messages back from my mail
server whenever mail is delivered to 'mrxadmin' and .forward'ed to
'webmaster at goingv.com'. The mail does proceed to be distributed by the
webmaster at goingv.com list and ends up at the correct recipients.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Except for a few bounced messages
like this one everything seems to be working fine.
