I think what some of you are perceiving as bounced messages is really
that some address on the list is bad and the server is
sending a message that that particular piece did not get delivered.
Although the rest got through.
Any list experts that can confirm/deny this?

The messages we're talking about are NOT those standard "Undeliverable
Mail" messages. The PICLIST list-server is smart enough to reject
posts that are duplicates of previous ones (a nice feature; sometimes
mailreaders run amok and send multiple copies of messages), but
something recently must have gone wrong with the list-server, because
it seems to ALWAYS think that it's received two copies of each message.
Oh, by the way... If anyone's getting "Host Name Not Found" errors from
their server's mail-router, it's because the PICLIST's "From:" line has
been somehow corrupted: The "%" in "piclist%mitcma.bitnet@...." has
been changed to an "@", so if your mailreader sends replies to the
"From:" address instead of the "Reply-To" address (NetCruiser and some
other readers do this), none of your replies will get anywhere.
You can fix this problem either by configuring your mailreader to send
replies to the "Reply-To:" address, or by manually changing the address
each time you send a reply. Jory Bell (keeper of the PICLIST) has been
notified of this problem, but I think he's out of town for a week or
two, so it may not be resolved for a while.
