It's just a way all the Redhat lists detect and deal with nonfunctional
email MTA at the subscribers.  After enough bounces are collected by
that return email address your subscription is put on hold.  This is to
stop monster mailqueues having to be dealt with by Redhat constantly
retrying dead addresses for every mail, etc.

All Redhat mails come from a similar address all the time, it doesn't
reflect any problems.
