Hi Andrew, Thanks for showing me the light. After blowing up the headers of those mails, I discovered that there are some headers that are common to all regardless of the list name: Sender: bind-users-bounce <at> isc.org Errors-to: bind-users-bounce <at> isc.org Precedence: bulk List-unsubscribe: <mailto:bind-users-request <at> isc.org?Subject=unsubscribe> X-List-ID: <bind-users.isc.org> So that makes sense.
