Subject: bounced mail
Unfortunately your mail bounced. The mail was deferred and you could
try to send your mail again at a later date. This bounce of mail
would have occurred even if you had not used anon.penet.fi.
Sorry about the inconvenience,
See, if your mail falls into one of the special cases:
1) UK: Trying to mail in the UK-standard way, backwards.
- Remember that the UK address system is backwards compared to the
rest of the world. What you think is uk.foo.bar is bar.foo.uk seen
from outside the UK... You have JANET to thank for that!
2) an9999: You try to mail anon user an9999
- Please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an anon ID.
You probably also want to send a message to email@example.com to
receive the help file.
3) Nickname: If you have a parenthesis in your nickname:
- Some mail systems can't handle your illegal From: address,
caused by your nickname that has unbalanced parenthesis;
for example you have a ":-)" as your nickname.
I suggest you change your nickname as soon as possible
and avoid parenthesis.
4) VMS VAX: You try to mail in the format IN%"user@address"
- The anon server is *not* a VMS VAX, so you shouldn't use that
horrible decnet IN%"something" hack. You just need to put the
user@address into the X-Anon-To: field.

I'm going to e-mail to let them know how absurd this seems...maybe
it's one of those funny things that happens once in a while.
"Sooner or later, your legs give way, you hit the ground; save it for
later, don't run away and let me down and let me down...."
YOU make the call.
