Ok, good. Now that Killes has tweaked the Mailman settings, incoming messages from an email address that isn't actually registered on the mailing list will now bounce, and the sender will receive the above error message, rather than having their email disappear into The Abyss.

I only discovered that this problem existed because I've been sending dozens of emails to the dev list for quite some years without paying attention to my own originating address, and apparently not a single one has made it to the list. All this time, I thought my words were being read but nobody ever responded. Now I know the truth; no one could hear me. :)

Thanks for fixing this with me, Killes! You rock.
