	If the files at $POSTOFFICE/postman/ are named:  *_*
	then they ARE processed with warnings, and perhaps
	sent, perhaps bounced, perhaps..  Anyway, the sender
	DOES get a reply, and you can delete all such files.

	Files WITHOUT *_* in their names are the tough nuts,
	that the router has not been able to handle at all.
	(No sensible address to return an error message to,
	 no working destination addresses, or some serious
	 system fault.  Resubmitting them to router might help,
	 or migh not..)

	It is still the same as 2.1/2.2.x were.
