When I wrote,

Cyndi Norman asked for more detail,

I don't know what Cyndi meant by "named addresses" -- it seems to me that
all addresses have to be named.

It works like this: if a post comes off your list to with two or
more addresses as envelope recipients, Juno will deliver until it
runs into one that is over quota; then it will defer that one and *all* those
after it.  Sometimes here in's mail queue I've seen the
deferred addresses tried again in reverse order, and then those listed later
on the envelope might get delivered.  But if there are two addresses over
quota on the envelope, those and all addresses between them will keep getting
deferred and retried.

Juno used to report failure after five days of deferral, and WWA used to kick
undelivered items in its mail queues back to their senders after five days,
but neither seems to be happening any more.

I've taken to sending each subscriber on Juno a separate delivery.  It may be
inefficient in theory for the first delivery attempt but in the long run it
leaves fewer addresses being retried for weeks and weeks.
