Why is it normal for a bounce processor to be the sender when there are 
no bounces?  This confuses some list members.

NOTE:* Please do not send my email address to ANY company without my 
explicit permission. For example, DO NOT use it to send me a greeting 
card, news article, or anything thing else that will be emailed to me by 
someone other than you. Doing so has made my old evjohn.com domain name 
entirely unusable, and consumed many hours of time in recovering from 
the situation. Thanks.
