I contacted my Internet service provider, Insight Cable, about the problem, and they need a copy of any message that bounces, so they can see what went awry.
So I can't just ignore the problem.
Maybe I should resend the message to postmaster at freebsd.org instead of freebsd-questions-owner at freebsd.org?
This problem relates to FreeBSD emailing lists in general, not just one list such as questions@ .
Now I see at http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo ,
If you are having trouble using the lists, please contact mailman at freebsd.org.
There was also a line in the probe message :
For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.
So now the choice is between mailman at freebsd.org and postmaster at freebsd.org ; I sent to mailman.
