Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-4506) Customized bounce notification for openoffice.org domain
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2012 15:55:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4506?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13220112#comment-13220112

Rob Weir commented on INFRA-4506:

That sounds right.  Starting March 15th, Oracle will shut down their servers that are currently
dealing with these emails.   So by default these messages will be undeliverable.  We'd like
to be a little more friendly to the sender.  The custom reject message would point them to
a wiki page where we would say something like:

If you were looking for the legacy marketing mailing list, please send to ooo-marketing.incubator.apache.org

If you were looking for the legacy security mailing list, please send to ooo-security.incubator.apache.org

> The legacy OpenOffice.org project had an email forwarding service.  Similar to what we
do with Apache, project volunteers were given openffice.org email addresses which would forward
to their real addresses.    Based on previous ASF Board discussions, we will not be migrating
this forwarding service to Apache.  And oracle is telling us that they will be shutting down
the legacy forwarding service after March 15th.  At the same time the legacy mailing lists
will be shutdown.  These also have openoffice.org email addresses.
> What we're hoping can be done is something like the following:
> 1) On or soon after March 15th, we update MX DNS records for openoffice.org so such traffic
gets routed to Apache rather than Oracle
> 2)  We bounce back all such openoffice.org emails received
> 3) This is the key part.  We don't want just a generic bounce error message.  We want
to bounce back with a custom response, one where we can explain the shutdown and direct the
user to a project webpage where we can give a directory of where the new addresses are.  So
legacy security list would map to the new ooo-security list, etc.  We just want to give the
link to the mappings.  We don't want to automate the forwarding due to the large amount of
spam the legacy lists receive.
