sf keeps bouncing my post as spam - how do i include any config
files? alternatively - how much badnwidth courier-imap list need?
can we move away from sf? who the hell is in charge of sf spam
Your suggestion to move off of SourceForge is a little premature. You
haven't even figured out why your posts are marked as spam. It's
possible your mail server has ended up on a RBL list or such. SF uses
SpamAssassin for filtering, you should see some headers describing why
the message was bounced. In addition, you can report issues to SF on
their site at: http://sourceforge.net/support/?group_id=1
A few months back, the lists mail servers were advertising STARTTLS
but would error out with a 5xx when a TLS session was started, a post
to the SF support site had the problem resolved in a few days. Not
bad for a mind-boggling large operation like SF. They have their
issues from time to time but when you consider what they actually
handle and the resources they make available for the OSS community,
it's pretty incredible.
The SF list servers also use sender verification. You must accept
traffic from the input side of the list server to the account you posted
from or you'll get your message rejected. That is not the same as the IP
that sends the message to list members.
I do not reply to directly addressed mail unless it is clearly a matter
that should be dealt with off-list.
