Subject [jira] [Updated] (INFRA-7594) Apache Mail blacklisted by SenderScore (aka "ReturnPath")
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:23:15 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7594?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Herbert Duerr updated INFRA-7594:
---------------------------------

    Description: 
Many Email providers use the service of https://www.senderscore.org/ named "ReturnPath" in
their fight against spam. If an IP address is blacklisted by senderscore then all the recipients
don't even get to see the mails from such spam servers.

For some reason hermes.apache.org got blacklisted three times in the last few days. One can
check whether it is currently blacklisted using their https://www.senderscore.org/blacklistlookup/
page. It is possible to request the blacklist status to be removed using their https://www.senderscore.org/rtbl/
page (I just did it for the third time), but it seems that hermes.apache.org is abused recently
to send spam mail, so it gets blacklisted again.

The only way to solve this to fix it at the root of the problem. Someone with enough karma
on hermes.apache.org needs the check the spam problem and/or work with them to resolve this
spam->blacklist issue. Mails being dropped for days and users not getting them at all is
a serious problem.

issue so that users get their mail more reliably.
