Sounds like some list members have broken autoresponders (or their sites
have broken autoresponders). (The fact that they are virus-detecting
autoresponders is not really relevant.) The usual answer to "What can I
do about broken autoresponders" is "Not much". Well, you can disable
the subscription of users with broken autoresponders. For politeness,
you should probably send them a note that you are doing so, cc'd to the
postmaster of their domain.
Hmmm, I think I'll add a FAQ entry for this...
