I have a mailing list of emails for an organization for which I write
the newsletter. Each month I mail out the newsletter, and I get back a
notification that a particular email address fails to be delivered
because it doesn't exist. When I type the address into the search box
in Thunderbird's address window, the address doesn't exist in my address

I have checked every email address in the list of addresses, and the
address isn't included in the list.

Here is the notification that I receive:

I don't know what is causing this, and I don't have any good ideas about
how to fix it. So I could use some help.

first check for a bcc (blind carbon copy) in the header of your original
outgoing email. Also check for an alias containing that addr, it might
refer to a good address.

are you starting with a *new* email or a template, the template may
contain the errant addr.

the list is so large that I have it broken up into six different mailing
groups. Each time I send out the emails, I send them as bcc so that the
mailing address list can't be captured by someone else.

What I normally do when I do the mailings is to click on the "write"
button once for each of the six groups in the list. In the address
window I click bcc, then type in the subdivision of the entire list,
such as A-D, E-L, etc. Then I attach the newsletter to each email,
paste in a subject in the subject window, and hit send.

If I understand your reply, then sending them as a bcc could be the
cause of this?
