When you get a "bounced" notification from a message you sent to the list, it
usually does NOT mean the list didn't get it. It means ONE person on the
list didn't get it. If it bounced from the list, you'll get a whole heckuva
lot of "bounce" messages. You can verify this by reviewing your bounce
message--it'll tell you that "suepstewrt : invalid address" or something like
that. If the list itself rejected it, the message will say so.
One bounce usually doesn't require a repost for a list message. ;-)
