Hi there,

Recently, updates from MoinMoin have started getting quarantined due to sender
verification failing. On investigating the problem, it seems that an assumption
about the webmaster mailbox is incorrect:

    220 bag.python.org ESMTP Postfix (Debian/GNU)
    MAIL FROM: <>
    503 Error: send HELO/EHLO first
    HELO argon.maildefence.co.uk
    250 bag.python.org
    MAIL FROM: <>
    250 Ok
    RCPT TO: webmaster at python.org
    553 invalid bounce (address does not send mail)

The MoinMoin instance on Python.org is sending mail as "webmaster at python.org".
Can somebody take a look? Or at least tell me who to contact.
