Messages from a listserv will reach you just fine @erols.com. However,
someone trying to use erols.com as a relay to send off multiple spam
messages will get a bounce. Spammers often use other peoples mailservers
to send out their crap.

I have mail relaying turned off in the rmkhome.com domain and I'm on 
many lists.
