Subject On Mailing List Spam Detection
Date Fri, 03 Sep 2010 17:07:19 GMT
Hey all,

This is a service message for everyone who got mails to these
mailing lists falsely rejected because of "spam".

The last instance of that included an email subject including
the word "replication". Not unusual for a CouchDB related

Now the spam filters at the ASF (SpamAssassin) have a default
rule of giving a high spam score to emails with the word
"replica" in the title (think watches). You guess where this is
going: the matcher is a prefix-search and matches
"replication". — Yay.

Infra is looking at relaxing that rule for us. In the meantime,
if your mail gets classified as spam and you get a bounce,
check the subject for "spammy" words :)

And as usual, the best Content-Type to send is "text/plain".

Thanks for your attention :)

PS: I sure hope this one makes it through :)
PPS: Thanks to ASF Infra for their quick help
