So what's with 'bounces' if no posts are going out, what's getting
returned to the list-bounces address, or do you mean attempted posts
being rejected (bounced back to the sender)?

So sendmail is bouncing posts back as undeliverable? do you have
sendmail aliases for the various My2ndListName addresses as in item 2)
of the FAQ?

What happens to your post attempt? Does it evaporate? Is it returned to
you? If returned, what does the return say?
