Subject Re: Nabble Archive emails to MLs rejected due to SPF check
Date Wed, 13 Aug 2014 00:53:51 GMT
The problem with Nabble is not purely Nabble's fault - as I have said several times now Nabble
uses the user's inbound address instead of a Nabble address because we insisted on it.

Now what Nabble needs to do for us is to rewrite those addresses using SRS, which ezmlm supports.
