I don't think that it is a problem with all netscape users, but we do get
a fair share who have this problem.  I try to notify people when bounces
occur, but typing up an explanation is sometimes more trouble than simply
approving the post.  (With mailman I just check the OK box and hit the
send button.)  If you post a lot and your mail bounces, you will usually
get my attention.  The occasional bounced post is not a problem.

The simplest answer is to send yourself an e-mail using your copy of
netscape and check the headers yourself.  Actually this works for any mail
program.  What you need to check is the "from:" and "sender:" headers.  
If these are correct, then there shouldn't be any problem.
