This isn't exactly a list issue, but bigred.net has come up with a mail 
configuration error that is a new one on me.

When my list sends out mail, the author is getting a bounce message back that 
says that 'huskers@bigred.net' is an undeliverable address.  There is no such
address on my list, but the To: header is set to 'huskers@celery.tssi.com'.
(And on my news sublist, I get a bounce back from husker-news@bigred.net,
so it appears pretty clear that their system is doing something strange
with the To: header.

That they are incorrectly sending bounce messages back to the author rather
than the envelope return address is a separate issue, but at least I've
seen that one before, far too often.

I've informed the site administrator.
