We have not found any indication of those posts having arrived at our 
servers. We do see logs of posts that are silently rejected. At this 
time, we have insufficient evidence that the error is at our servers.

PS - we did also see a recent shift in posts whose attachments were 
multipart/signed rather than multipart/text; the list had previously 
been configured to reject anything except plaintext or multipart/text, 
but that has been corrected. That did not affect posts from this 
address, though.
