Although some of the header info is garbled, possibly by a copy and
paste operation, this is clearly a copy of an "Uncaught bounce
notification". The original "bounce" appears to be a post erroneously
sent to LIST-bounces at ... instead of LIST at ...

My question now, is are we sure there isn't some miscommunication
between you, the list owner and the original user? Do we even really
know that the original user (or anyone other than the list owner)
actually received this specific message?
