Well, something must be wrong because it is delivered correctly to
99.8% of the addresses on my list.  It is probable that the 2 bad
addresses were behind a firewall or other redistribution point that had
misbehaving mailers, but it STILL caused complaints to show up in my
mailbox <G>.  One thing anyone with a sizable list knows is that not
everyone's system works like it's supposed to!
