If firstname.lastname@example.org was in the user database, the reflector software
would have cancelled the address itself.|
This problem is because someone registered a forwarding address as the user to Towertalk, and then abandoned the address being forwarded TO.
Towertalk sends reflector mail as if it came directly from the poster. The forwarder (whatever it is, could be qth.net or arrl.net or one of many others) sends it to email@example.com. Cs.com gets the message and dispatches mail to the original sender that the account bounced.
The only way to identify the culprit is for the admin to send a uniquely identified message to ALL the subscribers on towertalk, one at a time, and see which one creates a bounce on firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a very time-consuming job for the admin.
For all I know this is going on now, maybe twenty at a time.
I've done admin on a SMALL list and had this problem trying to find a subscription to an alias so that the wife of a silent key would quit receiving email. Took me a week to find the subscription.

It's been like that for months. With every post you get the firstname.lastname@example.org bounce message. Just something to ignore until its fixed.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
