[Debtags-devel] Re: List admin issues
Sun, 5 Jun 2005 13:38:50 +0200
Sorry, if <linux4michelle> is non-subscriber, but I get per day
between 200 und 6000 SPAMs on this E-Mail and I do not like to
change every week my E-Mail.
I am subscribed to this list with an "secret" E-Mail and the SPAM
on this is realy LOW. I have found that all E-Maisl of the
listmembers are publich visible, a thing which I do not like.
OK, <alioth> is using an Old 1.x version of mailmain, which does
not allow the "nomail" option. Can you suggest the <alioth>
maintaines to upgrade or is it possible to whitelist me ?

If I read only Mailinglists via <linux4michelle> the incoming spam is
twice as high as the legetim E-Mails (1600 per day) and I will lost
many messages. This is, why I use a second E-Mail to get the Messages
cleanly from the List.

Which mailmain version does <alioth> use ?
