  1. Re: Delivery Status Notification (Failure)

    Is there any other mailing lists/devs/forums that would help me with
    my problem. I have tried the mplayer mailing list, mozillazine, the
    firefox support mailing list, the firefox dev mailing list, and the
    irc for firefox support. In particular is there a good linux forum
    that might have devs checking it because I assume most on this list
    are windows users.

    well, if you've tried all those, then the answer is no. If the
    developers can't help you then nobody can
