Blocking on the freeBSD server will accomplish -nothing-, unfortunately.

Some idiot subscribed -- and *confirmed* -- *their* address to the mailing
list  (the Midphase ticket system is _not_ subscribed), and then aliased
or forwarded that address to the support at mpcustomer.com ticket system.

As such, it is effectively _impossible_ for the list owner to resolve the
problem.  The required information is simply _not_ available at the origin.

The *ONLY* people who can resolve the problem _IS_ the Midphase mail admin.
All he needs to do is check the *complete* headers for one of the list 
messages _as_received_ by Midphase, and see who the _original_ addressee is.
THEN that address can be unsubscribed, and the problem is solved.

A week or so ago, the usual 'monthly subscribtuion notification' went out
to all users.  THAT message alone, in the message _BODY_ had the info that
MidPhase would needed to act, had they cared to.
