I don't think it was necessarily from your ISP, as one seemed to go to 
the whole group, I think it was the ISP of the person who had the 
blocked message sending a message back to Time-Nuts which then got 
distributed to the whole group...

Reading the message, I got the impression that the person experiencing 
the problem was "joconnell" at an address in Ireland (ie is the address 
identifier for Irealnd) and not my ISP telling me I had a problem. 
However, the envelope seems to be from a pacific.net account, so who 
knows what was happening?

However, I only received the one message, so either "joconnell" and 
time-nuts managed to sort it out, or they have not tried sending another 
message since the bounced message?
