Oops, didnt give it a quick re-read before sending.

Almost all my email from mailing lists comes in as bounces, such as this 
one which came in from mailscanner-bounces at lists.mailscanner.info. And 
every once in a while I get one of those mailing list probe emails 
saying that my messages are bouncing. I still get them, and mail 
elsewhere comes/go just fine. But every mailman list I subscribe to 
seems to bounce messages to me? I just got one of those probes from the 
spamassassin list....most of the content removed below. I dont want to 
send the whole probe message with all the headers since all mty hosts 
are listed. But I can certainly send to someone off list if they might 
wish to take a look and make some suggestions.

Hi! This is the ezmlm program. I'm managing the
users at spamassassin.apache.org mailing list.

Messages to you from the users mailing list seem to
have been bouncing. I sent you a warning message, but it bounced.
I've attached a copy of the bounce message.
