administrivia: spam attack
it appears that at least one of the lists has made it onto a
spammer's mailing list. the spammer is using bogus from addresses,
making it difficult to track down the source.
therefore, i have re-enabled a feature of the exim mail transport
that we use on the new server, a feature named "sender_verify".
with sender_verify enabled, exim will refuse to accept email when the
From: address does resolve in a domain name service lookup (for the
non-technically minded, if the server gets email from firstname.lastname@example.org,
it will try to lookup fred.com, and if it can't resolve it, it will
reject the mail.)
unfortunately, some sites on the net have broken domain name service;
you may have trouble reaching the list in such cases. if you do have
a problem, let me know at the email@example.com address.
the relevance for alfa-digest and bmw-digest subscribers is that
sender_verify will be in place when these digests move to the new
server; the alfa-digest is scheduled to move on wednesday the 10th of
december, in the early afternoon, and the bmw-digest during the first
week of january.
