I have a member of a list who attempted to reply to a posting to one  
of my lists and her reply went to the -bounces address instead of to  
the address in the From field of the message that she should have  
received.  Here is a header fragment of what see sent.

  To: <pta-board-bounces at lists.shepard-families.org>
  Message-id: <0JN000JJK4V8O8YA at vms044.mailsrvcs.net>
  MIME-version: 1.0
  X-MIMEOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2600.0000
  X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook, Build 11.0.5510
  Content-type: multipart/alternative;
  Thread-index: AcfiEr1Ir6dhRiUeQQ+HOAlSF6YEwg==

She doesn't know what she did.  In fact she has asked me what she did  

The list is a perfectly ordinary list with no reply-to manipulation  
or the like.  And the message that she replied to others have  
successfully replied to without problem.

I really don't think that she's behind some stupid gateway that is  
mangling incoming mail.  She has a perfectly normal verizon.net address.

Does anyone know how an Outhouse user could have managed to reply to  
the -bounces address?  It strikes me that that would take a special
