I just sent a bug report to r-bugs at cran.r-project.org.   Unfortunately, the
message forwarding to r-devel failed.  It appears that this occurred due an
interaction between the forwarding setup and SPF:   
	1) The forwarded message had From  as gregory.r.warnes at pfizer.com, 
	2) Pfizer has SPF records in DNS 
	3) the forwarding host's IP address is (correctly) not listed in
these SPF records.
I suspect that this will increasingly occur as other organizations deploy
SPF. Hence some re-configuration of the r-bugs forwarding needs to be
performed.  Perhaps something like appropriately setting the "Sender" field
might help.
