Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.6
Severity: normal


I'm using smtphost reportbug.debian.org in my .reportbugrc and reported
a security relevant bug. reportbug asked my to send my report to the
private Security Team mailing list instead of the public bts. Then it
failed on submitting though:

	Report will be sent to team at security.debian.org
	Submit this report on XXX (e to edit) [Y|n|a|c|e|i|l|m|p|q|d|t|s|?]? y
	Saving a backup of the report at /tmp/reportbug-XXX-backup-20170526-3912-tomn0sw8
	Connecting to reportbug.debian.org via SMTP...
	SMTP send failure: {'team at security.debian.org': (550, b'relay not permitted')}.
	Do you want to retry (or else save the report and exit)? [Y|n|q|?]? 

(package name quoted as XXX)

Maybe reportbug.debian.org should be reconfigured to allow relaying to

Best regards
