This is a Mailman generated notice of some kind. I can tell from the

And it was delivered by a 'mailman' transport (most likely the
officially unsupported by the GNU Mailman project, third party,
postfix-to-mailman.py from a Debian/Ubuntu package) to
openglobe-l-owner at lists.techessentials.org. It should have then been
received by Mailman and resent as a separate message to the list's
owners and moderators.

The above message was not a post to the
openglobe-l at lists.techessentials.org list, although it may have been
precipitated by a post.

Please see the FAQs at <http://wiki.list.org/x/OIDD> and

Please read the entire "About Mailman-Users" section of the listinfo
page at <http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/mailman-users>
including the paragraph that begins "This mailing list is closed to
