If you use procmail to filter things, follow the instructions here:
and make sure the line you add is the very last rule. This will avoid any
possibility of bounces to lists. I'm on /usr/bin/vacation now, and it's
kept me from bouncing... Just thought I'd add this nugget, as lots of
places use procmail as the delivery agent, and it can be a pain to set up
in your .procmailrc if you're not familiar with the syntax.
