Re: The Dev list and blacklisting of mail servers

Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>

Its lists that you can subscribe too as an email provider really, whether you use a black list for the email lists run on your system is surely up to that system, but Sourceforge obviously do. I note that two messages on that list have appeared, in one case over a day after I sent it.
I'm sure if I looked at the headers I'd see a delay somewhere. I'm still waiting for the crucial email I sent to appear which is probably not going to occur now and as there are now two test emails there, I do not want to get moaned at by the list owner, though I'm sure they realise the frustration of this effect is really bad for business so to speak!

It isn’t the list server that uses black listing. Some providers don’t alllow certain domains because they are sending a lot of spam.

If that genuinely is the problem, then the list administrators / owners should
be asked to consider moving the list to a service which does not use

Just in case anyone has seen bounces from that list as I have my
investigations seem to suggest that they aare using a blacklisting
service called sorbs, and several ISPs mail servers are now on it, which
either results in a no post or a bounce.
I suppose its up to those isps to get rid of the spammer in their
systems and apply for removal from the list.
I thought I'd mention it here as its quite a new addition to the reasons
for emails to lists to not appear. At present, IO seems to not be
affected, but sourceforge is getting more and more picky on its message
acceptances. Brian
