Re: Slightly off topic, dev list what does this mean

No its an isp. And this problem has happened before. I tend now to have two accounts one on my isp and one on gmail or similar and usually if one has this problem the other does not, in a few days things normally get resolved. The only odd thing is that normal groups.io is affected as well and you have to re enable things but this time its only sourceforge that has complained but I've switched over to the other server.
I think that what often happens is that it gets on one list but not on others due to some person who is on your isp getting their machine botted.

All very irritating but a sign of the times I imagine.

Are you personally running your own mail server, or do you send mail through
your ISP's server?

If you're running your own mail server, is it on a static address with correct
reverse DNS records?

Ah, I see, maybe the server is on some black list then. That is the server
at my end of course.

This is probably why some messages do fail to get posted on some lists if
there is a listing which of course the average punter would not know about.

Thanks I'll just monitor the situation on that list and in the mean time
post from a different system.

550 means "fatal error - mail could not be delivered"

The "8.4 points" is most likely an anti-spam filter result (quite
possibly from SpamAssassin).

Basically this combination means that the mail server refused to deliver
your email to the list because it looked like spam, according to whatever
tests are done by that server.

I am sorry to have to inform you that your message, "Re: [Nvda-devel]
Python 3: puzzle pieces coming together, let us start porting or making
our add-ons compatible with 2 and 3", could not be delivered to
nvda-devel@lists.sourceforge.net.

The remote mail system said;

550:This message scored 8.4 points. Congratulations!

Well I wonder what i win.

For context I was attempting to configure an email client to post to
the account that is subscribed to that list. I'm sure there are some
knowledgable folk out there who recognises the error numbe. My guess is
that it might have gone via a server on another isp.
