#asfinfra IRC Bot closed INFRA-7323.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

> Unmoderated e-mails are silently dropped
> ----------------------------------------
>                 Key: INFRA-7323
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7323
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Mailing Lists
>            Reporter: Sebb
> Many of our mailing lists are moderated. 
> If a non-subscriber posts to the mailing list, a moderator can accept or reject the posting.
If the post is rejected, a message is sent to the poster.
> However, if the moderator ignores the post, the post never reaches the mailing list,
nor is the sender informed.
> This has consequences for posts sent to private mailing lists - the sender may not have
karma to be able to check that the message has been received, even if this is is important
(e.g. report of a security issue). They can only find out if they eventually receive a reply
from someone on the list.
> Important messages sent to the pmcs list may be lost this way.
> It seems wrong that there does not appear to be any notification that a message has not
been delivered.
