hmmm.

What's happening is that when your server tries to send to user@phos.net, the phos.net server is saying that address is not valid.  That may just be a generic response though, as it's reported by your server.

If you send to that address outside the list, does it bounce back with the same error?

Try taking "Precedence: Bulk" out of the headers for that list and sending that way.  You're not really supposed to do that, but I've found with my listservs that a fair number of bounces go away when I do.

Check your reverse dns pointers on whiterose.org to make sure there's nothing screwy there.

You might also try cranking up the logging to see if you can get any more detail on what's going on.

A user on a macjordomo list I server off my SIMS server is hosted at a site

messages.

Specifically, I see "Failed to deliver your message to USERNAME@phos.net.

I know that the gmail address that the message was sent from is valid, the
errors-to address is valid (it's a real mailbox), and the sender/reply-to
valid (it's a router entry).

I can't tell from the message why my messages are being rejected or if
there's something I can do to fix it.  What I found about "Sender Verify"
by Googling is here http://nemesis.lonestar.org/site/mail_trouble.html

Any ideas?  Any more information that would help diagnose it?

Thanks,
