when I just click Reply it goes to the individual whose post I am
commenting on. I need to click on Reply All and several emails are
in the blanks and I need to delete them all and move the list email
address from the CC: box to the TO: box. If I am not paying attention
and don't do this little email musical chairs process, sometimes I
will get out of office replies from some of the email addresses in
the reply. Is this 'bouncing'?

Technically, it is called back scatter. And SPAMers can use it to send SPAM to unsuspecting servers. And http://www.backscatterer.org loves to block mail servers that have auto responders turned on.

we all get when posting to the list(s)?

( Waits to delete all the bounce messages for this post :) )

Doing a little checking on your IP address, I have found that your
mail server IP is listed on a black list.  Check the link below.


This could be the source of your bounce messages.

I sporadically get a lot of messages that appear as bounces where people on
the list filter out replies and make you sign up to some web service to prove
you're a real person. Is that the sort of bounce you're talking about?
