Forwarding on behalf of Philip (cc’ed). Does anyone know why his
emails would be rejected? Is there some list filter applied to his
email or such?

have disappeared without trace (they do not appear in the archives, and
have generated no response).  The most recent of these was sent two days
ago :

I have now re-sent this from an alternative e-mail address in case, for
