I have got some of those bounces, too. It means people that bounce after
accepting the email, which is a no-no.

Well, the fact that some people answer emails here including the full real
address of the person they are responding to complicates things. It's
being more than a year since the SuSE archive stopped including that info,
which is nice (thanks to Chris, I think). But that is only true for this
one list, not the rest of SuSE lists.
