they can be a pain. I do a due dilligence trying to track things
down, then I have a procmail script that looks for the unfindable
names and throws away the error messages for me so I don't waste any
more time on them. If they don't want me to find the addresses, they
can waste the system resources bouncing stuff to /dev/null until I
get around to probing the list.
However, the very worst offenders, in my experience,
are AOL. I have had a persistent NDR from one of my dozen or so AOL
subscribers which has been with me for months. The alleged username is
not in my subscriber base. I assume that it is someone's AOL alias.
nope. I'll bet a beer it's someone forwarding from a non-AOL address
to AOL, where the AOL screen name is dead, adn the forwarding site is
stripping all of the useful info.
