This is not a problem of sourceware server.
He sent a letter to both list and the original message sender.
He got a reply from original sender's server that his message (in
off-list message!) was rejected.
I also get these bounces as much as every few weeks, as well as the
notes from the list that messages have bounced. Every time I've tried
to actually track down the cause, I've ended up rolling my eyes and
eventually blaming Yahoo (which is who handles the mail for my ISP) and
there is absolutely no way to find a human to even discuss this with.
My best guess is that Yahoo has a reputation for not adequately
clamping down on spam sent from domains it controls, so it seems to
revolve in and out of various, generally short term, local blacklists.
I agree it's not an issue with cygwin or sourceware.
