>>From a look at the bounce messages I got before writing a rule to bin
them, the problem is that the site used to have a Spamassassin user,
which was subscribed to this list but no longer has one. Maybe their SA
guy left and in a fit of overenthusiasm their sysadmins deleted the
Spamassassin user along with the guy's other account(s) but forgot to
cancel the list subscription. At least, that's my take on it.

If I'm right the best thing to do is to unsubscribe them, maybe after
sending a warning to their abuse mailbox. If nobody there cares about SA
then thats job done. If anybody is interested, they can resubscribe.
