<nettime> administrativa: bouncing mail


For whatever reason, more and more people seem to be subscribing
to the list through web-based email service addresses, filtering
their mail and autoforwarding it alternate addresses, etc. etc.--
with the result that more and more mail is getting bounced by ex-
pired accounts, overflowing mailboxes, and so on. This is a kind 
of hidden spam that hardly anyone sees but is no less a waste of 
resources--bandwidth, storage, CPU and human effort. Worse, it's 
almost impossible to track down, short of nuking the subscribers 
list and asking everyone to manually resubscribe. So, if you did 
something like this, please check that your affairs are in order.
