E maintainer-address-causes-mail-loops-or-bounces

The maintainer e-mail address either loops back to itself because it is set to an address which is known to bounce mails. Policy states: The email address given in the Maintainer control field must accept mail from those role accounts in Debian used to send automated mails regarding the package. This includes non-spam mail from the bug- tracking system.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 3.3 (The maintainer of a package) for details.
