Subject RE: Interesting note on bounces...
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2003 14:30:59 GMT
I always find the worst offenders for this are vacation handlers rather
than just errors (at this time of year anyway). Vacation handler
*should* only send *one* response to any given address, but YMMV.

I generally disagree with Brian. I think you should have at least "3
strikes and you're out", otherwise you may be victimised unfairly if you
have a few hours of mail server failure (or a full mbox or whatever).

We have a mailet to deal with relay bounces (30 limit) so bounce storms
will hopefully be covered.

At the moment I think this is only a problem for list manager software.
Therefore they should deal with it using the appropriate methods
(VERP's, headers etc).
