Test results for email posting

I emailed ten test posts for this blog to Blogger. Three of them were processed successfully by Blogger (#3, #4, and #10). The remaining seven came back to me as bounce-back messages with cryptic error messages from Blogger:
Command died with status 1: "IFS='
'&&exec /home/bloggermail/processmail2||exit 75 #bloggermail"
There's a lot more text to the message, but that's apparently the salient part. The initial part of the message is:

This is the Postfix program at host

I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not be
be delivered to one or more recipients.

It's attached below.For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

There was no clue given as to how to contact "<postmaster>". I suspect they mean

So, that's the state of Blogger email posting here on Sunday, April 10, 2005.

Oh, and it was a real pain to insert those angle brackets and vertical bars; you have to manually enter HTML entity names and codes, otherwise Blogger's post editor treats them as actual HTML code.
