Dennis Black responded to Evan Welsh's cry for help:

Evan> One of my mailing lists has suddenly stopped getting through to a
Evan> large number of its recipients.

Evan> As far as I can make out, nothing has changed in either the majordomo
Evan> set-up or the mmdf email set-up here and I've received no bounce

Dennis> Either edit the subscribers list and visually check for duplicates,

Dennis> one list. [More about strange characters deleted.]

Thanks for your response Dennis but I think I must be suffering from a
different problem than yourself. I have no duplicates and no dodgy
characters lurking in my subscribers list.

Can nobody suggest an approach to tracking down this problem? My perl is
certainly up to hacking the majordomo source but I'm a bit of a beginner
when it comes to mail protocols and the ilk so I'm not sure what I should
be looking for.
