I've got BITNET addresses on most of the lists I manage (except for
Majordomo-Users and Majordomo-Announce; I wonder why?  :-), and I've
never had a problem like the one you describe.

Are you sure the "owner" aliases and such are set up properly on your
end (like, they weren't accidentally set up to send error messages to
the whole list?)?  And that the "Sender:" field is getting added
properly to messages going to your list?
