Unusual mail behavior
I just ran into something strange, that I'm hoping someone can help me understand and possibly solve:

I have a user with an e-mail address of, let's say, name@domain.com. I use the mailer to send to a large list, of which name@domain.com is a member.

The next morning I get a bounce message telling me name@differentdomain.com doesn't exist, and the bounce includes the returned mailing... showing name@differentdomain.com as the addressee. I look, but differentdomain.com isn't in the list at all.

Now, I understand forwarding should keep the original addressee intact on the mailing, so how did the address change? What am I supposed to tell the addressee to do to fix the bounce?
