[Frank Tegtmeyer]

|   Exploders should never bounce to the original list (except when
|   the whole host is down). Everybody who sets up an exploder should
|   use some piece of software (like resend of Majordomo) that
|   protects the original list from local failures.

Agreed, but resend is overkill, it suffices to add an owner-exploder
alias (with sendmail, that is). Unfortunately, Sendmail honours the
Errors-To header in addition to reporting to the owner.
