it could (well that is my excuse anyway), so I am not quite sure I
understand you. Are you saying I could get multiple deliveries in a
case like so:
mylist "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend -l mylist -h mail.com mylist-outgoing"
mylist-request "/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper request-answer mylist "
mylist-outgoing :include:/var/spool/majordomo/lists/mylist, directfoobar@...
and the directfoobar@... soft fails? Is that what you mean by
other "direct" recipients? Or do you mean when someone sends an email
to mylist and anotherperson@... (say) and the
anotherperson@... soft fails? Or something else? sorry!

retries are necessarily for the entire alias, not just the failed part.
And the problem only happens when "directfoobar@..." is a local

or succeed independently.
