After I emailed the note to Meredith, concerning their server which was sending bounce messages to me – hundreds of them – even though they knew (or should have known) I wasn’t the culprit, I got this response (I have not corrected the spelling):

You must take action to stop this before close of business today.
Maybe I should just forward all the messages to him? I’m not sure what to
