I think the servers changed the behavior and started not just filtering the spam messages but also bouncing them back. It happens the information in the header of those messages are all fake and the actual messages end in the wrong mail box. I hope someone can fix the problem. On my side, everything is up to date and I'd no need to change any configuration recently.

So to avoid breaking the bookmark, the plan now is to keep a copy as-is of the
pipermail archives, (not the redirection). and have the new archives elsewhere.

The open question now is the new archives should they provide the ancient mail
as well? for now it has been decided yes, to not break threads, but restarting
from scratch would also be a very good option
