if the messages are bouncing off somebody's mail box, how will that
person receive this message.

it is called a "catch 22 situation". or, is it?

(ambar might be a member of egroups lists. if four messages from egroups
bounce, they immediately send a probe message to the same
address, if it also bounce they suspend. )

nope. how would i know that my net mail server or my local ISP mail

for that. can't ignore.
