I'd just like to point out how very broken your mail server has to be
before ending up dropped from the list. I've been dropped three times
that I can think of off the top of my head. Two were multi day outages of
my mail server and one was a serious misconfig that caused everything to
bounce for sereral hours.

Someone needs to suck it up and fix his mail server.
