Re: debian-user mangles mails



No, some mail to news gateway is broken and is bouncing ALL debian-devel
mails back to debian-user.  Notice the Sender and
X-Authentication-Warning headers.  I have notified
listmaster@lists.debian.org and
root/postmaster/usenet@niet.webforce.com.hk.  But it is still doing it.

I think the solution for now is to make a filter to /dev/null for all
mail from webforce.com.hk.
