No, there is nothing "funny" going on here, as I explained to 
"ao950 AT FreeNet DOT Carleton DOT CA", my mailbox was full, and so any messages from 
the list were bounced.  However, the combination of our network (Banyan) 
and our mail gateway (Zoomit) results in the internal network name and the 
error message being sent back in the _body_ of the message.  My internal 
network email address is David Berry AT MPAU@CMCA.

DCA5 is the server that does the mail gateway processing.

Ah, no - although if it was that easy.....
