Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 289181
email notification from invalid reverse-path
Last modified: 2014-01-14 17:52:47 EST
Email should be sent with a reverse-path to which bounces could be returned, if
there's a problem delivering the bugmail to its intended recipient. Many people
use that for spam checking, to discard mail with faked sender addresses.
Red Hat Bugzilla seems to be sending mail with a reverse-path of
<firstname.lastname@example.org>, which isn't a working address. Hence the
following rejection by my mail server:
2007-09-13 05:24:07 H=nat-pool-phx.redhat.com (mx1.util.phx.redhat.com)
[188.8.131.52] sender verify fail for <email@example.com>:
response to "RCPT TO:<firstname.lastname@example.org>" from mx3.redhat.com
[184.108.40.206] was: 550 5.2.1 <email@example.com>... Mailbox

Reassigning to our sysadmin guys.
Oooh shiny... I got that one!
