Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-7594) Apache Mail blacklisted by SenderScore (aka "ReturnPath")
Date Sun, 08 Jun 2014 19:03:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7594?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14021269#comment-14021269

Joe Schaefer commented on INFRA-7594:

UCB sent by the org is currently being addressed at the executive levels.  What would be helpful
is actual evidence of offending emails coming from hermes (mail.apache.org) that haven't had
their Received headers spoofed to look like ours.

>             Project: Infrastructure

> 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.
