Take a look at the Received: headers in the bounced message.. note that
jiscmail dropped it off at robsdesk, and then later robsdesk delivers it back.

Received: from
( [])

Rob: please fix your server. It appears to be attempting to re-deliver
messages based on the To: header, instead of properly tracking the
envelope. It is NEVER valid to attempt mail delivery based on the To: field
inside the message.
