No, resend doesn't look at 'mungedomain' when comparing addresses to the

Since 'mungedomain' doesn't have any impact on this, these folks are
subscribed incorrectly if they're bouncing. Probably their mail appears
to come from firstname.lastname@example.org but they're subscribed as just xxx, so of
course they don't match. Unsubscribe and resubscribe them correctly.
