Everything below is in check. Here's the response I get when
trying to confirm an address:
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).
A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
check01-request at 240z.org
Child process of list_request_transport transport returned 2 from
Does this lead on to the possible problem?
