escribe.com & lists




     Today the server that processes list mail was choking, 128 MB of e-mail
backup in queue.  The vast bulk of it was list mail destined for escribe.com
addresses.

     Escribe.com is refusing connections and has been doing so long enough for
128 MB of e-mail to backup.

     A number of list administors put escribe.com addresses above the line that
prevents automatic removal.  PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS.  If it weren't for this
these undeliverable addresses would have been automatically removed and normal
mail processing for everyone else would have been uninterrupted.  There is a
reason for having an automatic removal mechanism for bounced mail, and this is
it, to prevent disruption of the rest of the mail destined for addresses that
actually work.
