those are likely to be mail server notices of failures if you're sending
from yourname@localhost.domain your ISP is most likely not to carry those

oh. that's balsa-1.1.3, do yourself a favour and upgrade to 1.2
it prolly won't help directly with this problem but, you should upgrade
anyway cause 1.1.3 is an early devel release and has a number of bugs
and using 1.2.4 will help people help you :)
