[APG Public List] Mail Delivery Failure

The one thing I did find out, is that on lists you must use the same e-mail address that you registered with.  If you use a different one accidentally the list will not recognize your addy and thus bounce it back to you.

Happy Turkey Day to all!

I've been bouncing for awhile now, but not on these APG lists.  I recently checked out the information that is provided with the bounce message and it appeared that my domain was being blocked.  That fits since I'm using a gmail account for these lists where I'm NOT bouncing, but am bouncing using my other "regular" email address.

Thanks, Dee, for your input.

My message to the T-G-F Rootsweb list bounced within minutes. The bounces are sporadic. Early last week and the previous week, it was a consistent problem. Then eventually a couple of my messages went through. Now it's back to "bouncing-time." It isn't much of a personal inconvenience as I'm not too active on Rootsweb lists, but when attempting to maintain a conversation thread, it is definitely an annoyance.

I checked the archives of the Rootsweb lists that I participate in, and the pattern of no messages for several days is consistent with what is happening here with me.

At least it isn't an APG problem now that their two lists are on their private server.
