Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64201
bounce processing broken

From Bugzilla Helper:
Description of problem:
mailman has the ability to auto-process bounce messages and then remove people
from a mailing list or just stop attempting to deliver mail until mail deliver
is reenabled. Setting users to "no deliver" doesn't seem to work, but removing
users does work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a list.
2. Add a non-existant mail address to the list.
3. In the "Bounce Options" section of the admin page, set "Action when critical
or excessive bounces are detected" to "Disable and notify me".
4. Send enough messages to the list so that it is considered excessive. Watch
the mailman logs to see when an excessive number has been reached.
Actual Results: Nothing. The fact that there had been an excessive number of
failures was recorded in the logs, but the user was not shown as disabled on
the "List members" page. Also mailman continued to try to send mail to this
Expected Results: Mailman should disable delivery of mail to this problem user
and notify the list administrator.
I also tried setting the bounce action to "remove and notify me" and that *did*
I've recently picked up ownership of the mailman package and I'm going through
old bug reports. The current version is 2.1.1. I'm wondering if you've upgraded
and if you are still seeing this problem.
I don't have access to the machine that I reported the problem about anymore.
Feel free to close.
