Dunno if this is relevant, as I'd have thought you'd have found out by
now, but...

I have a friend with an ntlworld account. For a long time NTL were
forwarding a copy of every email sent to him to his address with his
previous ISP, which no longer exists. So every mail sent to him was
delivered correctly to his new account, but also generated a bounce
message from his old account. I told him, and told NTL, but it still
kept happening for months.

As an experiment, I'll CC you on this message, to see if the direct
copy generates any sort of bounce. Hope you don't mind!
