Mail-related comments in ACM risks

I've noted a couple of mail-related postings in the ACM risks forum.

This issue is archived at <URL:>

(1) In "Risks of bouncing messages from closed e-mail lists", a suggestion 
that closed mailing list bounces can be used to create a mail loop (I don't 
think this works, but I may be missing something).

(2) In "More risks with MS Outlook", a possible issue with 
multipart/alternative -- something to note in a future "security 
considerations" section?
