The problem is that it's not _me_, it's a computer program which uses
some mail delivery system which I don't have full visibility into. I
don't know if it even gets bounce emails (as far as I understand it's
not LKML that generates them, LKML SMTP server just returns some error
code and then it's a responsibility of somebody else to represent it
by a reply email). If the only way to probe the behavior is to send
actual emails to LKML (which have high chances to be actually
delivered to all subscribers), it makes testing somewhat problematic.

I've looked at it manually and did not find any matches. Again, a
reply quoting full original text was delivered.

Yes, I understand. But that would be a perfect way to probe behavior
and look at bounce messages. The problem is that it does not seem to
work at all.

I will try that one. Thanks.

Yes, the ticket was filed as:
https://rt.linuxfoundation.org/SelfService/Display.html?id=50245
(so emailing helpdesk@kernel.org part worked fine)
