Subject RE: [ISSUE] Shut-down of all name@ e-mail addresses
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 04:01:52 GMT
Hi Dave,

where I am confused is the focus on Mailing-List forwarding rather than E-mail 
forwarding.  I can't tell what the intended behaviors are.

Let's get clear:

 1. If someone posts to one of the old e-mail list addresses (e.g.,, what is intended to happen?  What is the observed 
behavior?  How does this extend to use 
of -subscribe, -unsubscribe, -help, -owner (or their OO.o counterparts), etc. 

 2. (a) If someone sends an e-mail to an existing account/e-mail address 
(e.g.,, what is intended to happen?  What does the 
individual that it current forwards to get to know or do about it?  The person 
sending the e-mail?  If the forwarding bounces, what will happen?
    (b) If the account is closed/deleted, what are the 2(a) answers.

 - Dennis

Joe and I discussed doing it w/o subscriber lists. As a pure forwarder that's 
choice one and two.

You do. See my other reply.
