The best of luck, John! (See below)

This looks like a forwarding to a paging service (i.e. whoever it is
gets a message on his pager or mobile phone that he has received email).

The German "Ein Fehler ..." means "An error has occurred in the operation
of your Skyper-Caller".

The German "Die maximale ... " means "the maximum number of calls for the
pager has been sent", i.e. his allowance has run out.

This message caused a lot of fuss on the SuSE-Linux list some time ago
(last July). It was eventually fixed, but I can't remember how. I think
it involved the SuSE-admins reconfiguring the list headers so that such
messages would go to the list-owner rather than the person posting the
message (something to so with "Reply-To and "Return-Address").

John -- if you like, I could try mailing the SuSE-admins to see if they
can remember how it was solved? As I rcall, they got no joy from Skyper.

Meanwhile: it's not worth anyone on the list making a fuss about getting
these messages!

Best wishes to all,
