I've heard from people saying they've got the same issue but haven't had any
more responses with ideas. I'm getting desperate since more and more
customers are beginning to see this. I don't understand why it would begin
happening after running smoothly for several months and why it's only one
user for some domains, and multiple users for others. Aliases don't seem to
be the problem since the first domain that ran into this didn't have a
single alias or mailing list defined. I'm apparently not the only one seeing
this so hopefully someone has run into it before and can help...??
