Hi All on DLUG Meeting.

Thanks to you it appears Hugh is correct and today Tsohost have corrected the MX server. At the moment my cinfo email is working but the others are not - yet.  Nead to check tomorrow that the changes to MX have filtered thro' the system. Replying to Peters email below which has just appeared as I was updating the Thunderbird emails on the desktop, so hope this gets out.
Many thanks Hugh and others for your help.

I was pointing out this list had suspended Clive's subscription because
of bounces.  Each bounce was due to the MX host for the domain refusing

SMTP server others should use to email Clive.

As expected, the CC to Clive bounced.  :-)

I've never been clear who provides the email system which Clive is
using.  If it's GoDaddy then, as I wrote to Peter yesterday, an Internet
search found
https://uk.godaddy.com/help/check-and-manage-my-mx-records-7590 which
suggests the two DNS MX RRs should be

      0 smtp.secureserver.net
     10 mailstore1.secureserver.net

This page gives IMAP and outgoing SMTP server configuration.

swaks(1) can be useful to give command-line SMTP email tests for someone
else to run and feedback the result.  Similarly fetchmail(1) for POP3 or
