Subject [jira] Updated: (INFRA-1640) Please review spam filter, seems to strict
Date Sun, 08 Jun 2008 05:51:44 GMT


Roy T. Fielding updated INFRA-1640:

    Attachment: bb.txt

My hosting provider for marked your test message as spam.
I retrieved it from quarantine and will attach it.

The main rules it triggered were FORGED_MUA_OUTLOOK=3.36, SUBJ_ALL_CAPS=1.049.
The latter is just because of the subject.  I don't know why it thinks you have a
forged MUA.

X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.5512
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2900.5512

However, it is clear this is not limited to Apache.  You will be blocked by most sites
that use spamassassin.

> I am contributing to Maven and recently experienced ongoing rejections of my posts to
our mailing lists because of the mail's spam rating. After some discussion [0], I decided
to create this issue.
> Some hints that might help to locate the problem:
> My last successful post dated back to June the 1st, I encountered my first rejection
on June the 6th. I managed to post mails by using alternative user agents, i.e. SquirrelMail
and Nabble worked, in contrast to my primary user agent MS Outlook Express. I recently updated
my WinXP box with SP3, maybe the bump in version number affects the spam filter.
