The last message I see (prior to mine) from geeks at sunhelp was last
Thursday, October 8th.

I don't think so. At least I thought that the hot wiring that I did to
my mail server only effected /sending/ of email.
The changes I made to the DNS server would have effected /receiving/ of
I have successfully sent a message to the geeks at sunhelp mailing list
/and/ received my copy of said message from said mailing list.

Were you sending a message to geeks at sunhelp or a different address?
I accidentally sent a message to geeks at sunhelp from the wrong address
and did receive the DSN from Mailman stating that I wasn't subscribed
(with that address) and thus the message was rejected.

Ya ... email tends to be more reliant on DNS. At least unless you
explicitly tell it to not use it for specific domains. And that's
exactly what I did. I hard (hot) wired email routing so that email for
sunhelp.org goes to ohno.mrbill.net, which is resolvable do to my DNS
hot wiring (forwarders).
You can probably do similar or configure the email routing to go to the
Grant. . . .
