Understood. I had thought that perhaps others on this list had had
similar problems and I could get a bit of a handle on the lay of the
land with MS from others. This is indeed the case.

I got good responses here from Mark Sapiro and Stephen Turnbull with
concrete suggestions on resolving the problem. Unfortunately, Microsoft
has informed me that my IP address "does not qualify for mitigation",
so I've asked for more details.

It looks as if I may need to unload all my Mailman list hosting clients
and send them to a commercial service such as MailChimp.
