I am working with Zmailer-Version (2.99.49p3) under Linux 2.0.0.
Everything is working quite smooth, except the following.
While the system is running an increasing amount of files with the
same content is created in the "~/public"-directory. Almost all of
these mails are sent by mailing lists to recipients on our mail
server. The header of these mails read as follows.

There are two entries in the header that arose my suspiscion. These
are the entries "NO-IDENT-SERVICE" and the "Precedence: bulk".
Although, I have temporarily removed the smtp-policy entries, the
problem still consists. It seems to me as if the mailing-list-owner
does not receive a "delivered"-information. So the mailing-list-
program starts over and over again and tries to deliver the message.
And this leads to the submission of always the same mail to the
The worst case we experienced so far was that the hard disk was full
of messages with the same content. As a work-around, I have now
temporarily inserted a cron-job which moves all the files from the
