There are appear to be a significant number of list subscribers who have delivery confirmation turned on.  I'm not sure if this is at the MTA or client level.  Please do not turn on delivery confirmation.  If you have delivery confirmation turned on, please turn it off.  Imagine your mailbox filled with:

I really don't want to know if list mail got delivered.  I only care when it doesn't.  All of these messages are coming from Exchange servers.  God Bless Microsoft because I wont!  This just generates a return to the 822 envelope address, owner-SYBPERL-L, which is me.  It fills my box and eats up time.  

Dealing with bounced mail, especially this time of year, is enough.  I've notified some of you personally but there are just too many and I will need to start deleting these users from the mailing list.
