Re: [vox-tech] filtering the lists?

I'm not seeing the bounced messages... isn't it only you who get the
bounced messages?  If that's the case, can't you just filter them on
your end?  Also, since mail-archive.com sees what we see (as opposed to
what the list maintainer sees), mail-archive wouldn't archive the bounced
messages... right??
