** Sometime around 09:36 -0700 08/23/1999, Sam Brooks sent us:

I then join your list with me @
msn .
com
Everything OK, then address bounces.

MSN notifies you, the listowner, that me @
classic .
msn .
com
in not valid.  So, you now send an email command to the
server to uns*b me @
classic .
msn .
com .
  And what happens,
the server comes back and says, me @
classic .
msn .
com,
is not a member of whatever list.

Solution:  Most of the time, just drop the prefixes
in the email address in front of msn.com and send
the addy in.  OR, pull down your subscriber list
and look for the address there.  I've never had a
msn member that was not on my subscriber list.
However, most of the time is was just not in a
form the computer would recognize.

<gratuitous plug> SmartBounce will automate this address-matching
process for you. See http://www.smartbounce.com for more info on
bounce handling ad nauseam. </plug>
