#3 mails "as a list administrator..."


Hi Rony,

Committed my first change today, and I received this mail :
Message from bsf4oorexx-svn-bounces@lists.sourceforge.net :
Your mail to 'Bsf4oorexx-svn' with the subject
SF.net SVN: bsf4oorexx:[79]
Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.
The reason it is being held:
Post by non-member to a members-only list

And then I received mails "as a list adminstrator..." :
Message from bsf4oorexx-svn-owner@lists.sourceforge.net :
As list administrator, your authorization is requested for the
following mailing list posting:
List: Bsf4oorexx-svn@lists.sourceforge.net
From: jfaucher@users.sourceforge.net
Subject: SF.net SVN: bsf4oorexx:[79] trunk/bsf4oorexx.dev/utilities/ooRexxTry.rxj
Reason: Post by non-member to a members-only list

Message from bsf4oorexx-bugs-owner@lists.sourceforge.net :
As list administrator, your authorization is requested for the
following mailing list posting:
List: Bsf4oorexx-bugs@lists.sourceforge.net
From: noreply@sourceforge.net
Subject: [ bsf4oorexx-Bugs-3512053 ] ooRexxTry.rxj : .output~charout and .output~lineout
Reason: Message has implicit destination

Not a big problem, because the commit has been accepted.
I noticed several mails like that since the creation of the project.

    Bonsoir Jean-Louis,

    thank you for your information, which unfortunately was also held due to MailMain prohibiting "implicit destination" messages.

    There are two issues here:

    1. interestingly the svn message of Sourceforge was decorated with your Sourceforge userid (committer id) as sender, but in the membership of the bsf4oorexx-svn list your gmail list e-mail address is recorded; by choosing the accept option in the administrator "pending messages" screen, I was able to release this message. Maybe a better solution would be to use your Sourceforge mail-id as a membership entry rather than the gmail address? (Just did not want to change the entry without your consent!)

    2. some mailing lists for the various trackers do not send the message with the "To:" or "Cc:" field but with the "Bcc:" field instead, which is by default blocked ("implicit destination"); I changed the respective setting on all the mailing lists to allow such messages to be passed through without human intervention.

    thanks Rony
    I changed my address mail to use the sourceforge mail.

    Jean-Louis, has the problem gone away by any chance?
