Hi Marc,

Concerning my ISP smtp.free.fr, it's really a filter on the subject :
when I send a "normal" email with "Mail delivery failed" in the subject,
it disappears without any error message. It's a pity : this way I guess
I can't know when my own emails do not arrive...

Concerning the option bounce_message_file, I tried in both
(of course I use the split configuration scheme)

It simply doesn't work. Do you have another idea ?
