Thanks for that. I do use procmail and would be able to filter and
ignore those message like that. It seems that the option 'Hold posts
with header' does just do that too.
I would have liked to use the bounce detect feature from Mailman (which
adds to /var/log/mailman/bounces and shuts down user accounts
automatically after a number of pre-specified bounces. I was hoping that
I could adapt its detection mechanism in some way to catch those Hotmal
'mailbox full' messages, rather than just filtering 'm. I use Mailman
1.1, maybe those features are better in new releases?

Best regards.
