I can't help, I don't understand.  I yesterday followed up to a mail
that was additionally addressed to the <debian-ctte@lists.debian.org>
mailing list and got an automatic reply telling me that the mail cannot
be delivered because I'm not subscribed.  Not a bounce, but an automatic
reply to the address in the From: header, not the envelope sender
address.  How do you call this?

I'd be happy if it would've been a delivery notification giving me the
opportunity to easily confirm the mail to have it finally delivered,
and, as a bonus, all subsequent mails I send, without subscribing.
That's how the debian-package-dash@list.smarden.org works.  And for
subscribers, mail is delivered immediately.  You didn't subscribe.

With the <debian-ctte@lists.debian.org> mailing list, I now need to
guess whether the From: address needs to be subscribed or the envelope
sender address, subscribe with that address, re-send the message, losing
information about the cross-posting, and maybe do the same again if I
guessed the address wrong.  I don't do that.

Regards, Gerrit.
