Yes, a couple of other people emained me that information privately.
Joe's FreeBSD email address is even on the web page for the list, as one
respondent pointed out.  But silly me, I sent my original message to the
email address given in the email message mailman sends when you
subscribe to the list.  That is the one that bounces.  And the personal
account that is bouncing is not for a gentleman named Joe.  Anyway, I
have emailed Joe and await his response.

Sorry about that, but I haven't been able to come up with a wording that
everyone takes notice of.  Every message I send to a list has the
Mail-Followup-To: header set to the list, but for one reason or another
some people insist on sending replies to me and the list.  I don't mind
people responding in private, but if I have indicated that I am happy
that they only send the response to the list I wish they would!

Sorry for the rant!  :-)

And many thanks to all those who responded to my initial message whether
on the list or off.
