Hi Karl. As I said to you offlist, this may be just down to mail being sent to 
you from the list, being bounced back to the list. I'm on a few lists, but 
know that if too many bounce backs are received, some list administrators 
will disable mail being sent to you. Then, as "you" have, you have to go to 
your mail delivery options, and reset it to enabled.

I do hope that nobody on the list would be so vindictive as to hack into your 
subscribe options, and disable mail being sent to you. That as far as I'm 
concerned would be totally out of order, and just can't believe that's the 

I've had problems sending to some lists. Mailman for sourceforge hosted lists 
was refusing to accept mail sent to various lists, and I had to change the 
address I was sending from. I also had problems sending to the ntp list. 
SORBS was blacklisting mail sent to the ntp list from my ISP. I contacted the 
guy handling spam at the ntp list, and he removed my ISP from the SORBS 
blacklist, with the proviso that if spam levels went up, the ISP would again 
be blacklisted. So far so good on that one.

I think that rather than jumping to conclusions, which I hope are wrong, I'd 
send an email to the list administrator, and ask why my mail deliveries had 
been disabled. See below. Make sure to specify the mailing list your 
referring to.

All the best mate.
