I have been thinking about writing a separate bounce handler script that
would read and parse the various error and warning messages the MTA's keep
sending to the 'listname-owner' and act upon them based on some simple
rules file. The problem is that my time available to such a project is
limited and so is my know-how in PERL.
What I am suggesting is that some volunteers reading these two greatcircle
mailing lists form a Bounce-Handler-Workers team (just like
majordomo-workers) and start working on it. I think the script should be
written in perl and possibly use the majordomo file locking when parsing
the error message against a list of subscribers.
I have set up a mailing list on our server for this purpose but if you
think it is more a Greatcircle thing, then maybe the forum should be
