Today i kicked 560 Mailaddresses off lists.debian.org ...

... because they are bouncing.

In my ongoing attempt to investigate and fix problems of our mailinglist-server, i found that we only had a working bounce-detection for lists starting debian-* minus debian-private and the three digest-lists.

So i rewrote some parts of the bounce detection:

We now have four categories of lists:

Debian Lists vs. Mail2News-Gateways

While analysing the pole setters in our internal bouncers-Hitlist i found that some of them run a mail2news-Gateway.

The problem is: our Mailinglists leave Mail-Headers mostly untouched, and so headers like X-Trace or X-Complaints-To are passed through without modifications.

If a mail containing those headers is handed over to inews (as in INN) it rejects it, and the bounce comes back to us:

das N810 ist da

ich schreib ja schon hier das ich an dem Entwicklerprogramm von Nokia für das n810 teilnehme.

Heute vormittag habe ich nun das Gerät als letzter der Kollegen erhalten.

Das Gerät selber ist interessant, und durchaus beeindruckend, diverse Härtetests wie Geocaching, Routing, oder externes Hirn stehen aber noch aus. Derzeit bin ich noch damit beschäftigt mich wohnlich einzurichten, VPNs zu basteln, und so weiter. Dazu später in anderen Blogeinträgen mehr.

Spamwaves on Lists or 'oops, i did it again'

Just a quick note:

while wading through the list-archives, drop-boxes and list-configuration to find false positives and possiblities to optimise our mailinglists spam level i accidently removed the inclusion of our spamfilters from most lists.

I appologise for this.

Luckily zobel discovered my error and fixed it at 14:30 CET.

Precedence-Mail-Headers?

I'm just wadeing through Debian-Mailinglists on the search for enhancements and false-positives.

and i just came over debian-security-announce, a lists that sends a helpful message back to submitters that aren't allowed to send out advisories.

That message didn't contain a Precedence-Header so i added one, and wondered which value would be appropriate... I remember to have seen three values: 'junk', 'bulk' and 'list' (the latter should be set for all our Mailinglists).
