Hi Andrew,

I'd have a look to see if the email addresses that are being disabled come
from similar domains... problem might be caused by reverse dns or spf
records - check out
for some ideas.

> bounce_processing=Yes
> bounce_score_threshold= 5.0
> bounce_info_stale_after=7
> bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings=5
> bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings_interval=7
> bounce_unrecognized_goes_to_list_owner=no
> bounce_notify_owner_on_disable=yes
> bounce_notify_owner_on_removal=yes
> But it seems likely that this is bogus, and good addresses are being
> disabled (especially if this grows to 100% of subscribers!)
