It is safe to just delete the message..... I can't see why we can't fix
this so users don't get bothered by this.
(1) You send your e-mail to the list....
(2) The list gets the message and forwards a copy to all the subscribed
(3) One, or more of the members (I'm hopping only one, if more you
would be getting multiple for every single post).. has their e-mail
handled by a domain/server practicing this type of anti-spam guard. The
e-mail address in the reply to your post is not the subscribed person's
What you can do....
(1) If you run your own mail-server BAN all messages from this domain.
(2) Delete the message.
(3) Contact the domain administrator and notify them of the problem
(there are thousands of people subscribed to this list probably)
(4) Organize a mass invitation to flood the server with responses to
every email posting....
(5) Ignore the message.
I wouldn't suggest #4 above without first trying all the others at least
