The problem seems to be that they forgot to migrate
the user settings to the new server!

Now we get all those nice "out of office" notices 
of "post only" accounts, burning up those addresses for spammers.

Too all "hide" values are set to "hide off".

Not amused.

That should have done the list owner -before- migrating, 
if it was not possible to migrate the settings.

Today its common to block every email from unknown IP.
Without per-information the user suddenly finds all list
in his spam folder, is he did not reject all mails because of
the unknown IP...
