Achim, thank you for checking into the Barracuda side of things. Matt 
and I were on it yesterday as well.  Another issue is that we seem to be 
getting spammed with subscription requests from a particular account 
(neil+[xyz]@neildeer.com where xyz is a random set of letters).  I have 
been investigating ways to shut that down and have made a number of 
modifications.  The lists should be working better.  Please let me know 
if you begin having issues again.
