Quoting Greg Ward (gward at mems-exchange.org):

Note that this is probably more of a danger with lists that set the
reply-to back to the list.  Personally, I much prefer to set up my lists
that way, and I've had very few broken autoresponders, but when I do I
handle them the way Greg says.

Also, I run a lot of my lists through a procmail spam filter before
sending them on to wrapper, so I can catch them with that if I want to.
