Blogger Email Bug

The 'Mail-to-Blogger' functionality makes it easier to be a regular Blogger but there seems to be some bugs which still need to be sorted out with this feature.

I have mailed the Blogger team w.r.t a bug, which was discovered by Hrishikesh Thite (who had fallen to the dark side of 'MSN Spaces' due to the email feature, but i'm glad that he's back)

The mail to Blogger is as below and adds on to my knowledge of the 'Inner Workings' of Blogger:

When i mail from my email account to blogger, it publishes to the blog but also sends me a mail stating 'undelivered' when it actually has been delivered. I checked out the Known Issues and this is in indirect conflict with the completed issue that 'Everyone should be able to blog via mail'. I am attaching the content of the mail below.
A Blogger Fan,
