Mailman list,

I'm starting to see messages like this in great abundance:

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at server.DOMAIN.org.
I tried to deliver a bounce message to this address, but the bounce bounced!

<DOMAIN_enews-bounces+condorito5=hotmail.com at lists.DOMAIN.org>:

preline: fatal: unable to copy input: broken pipe I'm not going to try
again; this message has been in the queue too long.


My system is setup like this:

Qmail patched like a madman.
The lists.* domains have a .qmail-default with:

|/var/qmail/bin/preline /usr/bin/python

Qmail-to-mailman.py is the Bruce Perens script.


Any suggestions on where to start on this one?  I've googled, I've searched
the mailman list, and I still can't buy a clue.
