Please note that this message will contain a full copy of the comment thread, including the initial issue submission, for this request, not just the latest update. Category: bounce processing Group: Mailman 2.1 Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Submitted By: Bron Gondwana (brong) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: Admin address over quota causes bounce loop
Initial Comment: X-Mailman-Version: 2.1.9.cp1
I'm not the administrator of the Mailman instance, just the poor sysadmin of a mail service who was woken in the middle of the night by our MX servers being severely overloaded by a mail loop.
One of our users hit their quota in Cyrus and hence their mail was bouncing. This user is the admin for a Mailman list, and the list has been configured to forward all bounces to the admin.
The message was:
--===============2109117388== Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

And above that stacks of:

The attached message was received as a bounce, but either the bounce format was not recognized, or no member addresses could be extracted from it. This mailing list has been configured to send all unrecognized bounce messages to the list administrator(s).

I will point the owners of the offending bug at this thread so they can provide more specific information if they wish, without giving their privacy away.
