Can you post at least the first portion of the "RE: Re: Who uses 3-D
graphics?" message you received? I doubt that it was spam.

Most likely, it's a "delivery failure" response from some server.
Because of the way the Techwr-L list works, out-of-office messages, bad
address messages, etc., go not to the list server but to the individual

When a poster gets a delivery failure message, the nice thing to do is
forward it to admin -at- techwr-l -dot- com so that the bad address can be
unsubscribed, thus sparing future posters from getting the same message.
