I'm sorry to say, welcome to the club.

This has been going on for 5 months since the old mail.python.org server
died and was replaced late last October.

I'm not sure what the current status is with mail.python.org. We haven't
seen any Mailman list bounces since mid January. Maybe everyone got
unsubscribed by bounce processing. I thought we had actually done
something to stop sending to verizon.net, but I can't find anything (if
it was done, I didn't do it).

Good luck, and if anyone has a way to actually contact Verizon other
than by submitting forms to an apparent black hole, please let us know.
