I have a list that is configured to reply to a specific address. On two
occasions, when a message was sent out, an automatic vacation message
generated a "reply to return receipt" to root mail. Fine, if it were 1
message. But they keep a comin' by the hundreds and thousands. I don't
know where to stop them and I have unsubscribed the individual. In the
first case, it stopped when they turned off the vacation message. Now I
am experiencing another one.
I include one of the messages below. Any idea why this is being generated
to root mail and how to stop it?
