Re: Added mail rewrite rule for builder@administrator

Hi Petter,

The postmasters at uio.no (our hosting site) report that emails from

I do not know how to best fixed this, but believe I found a workaround
by adding this in /etc/, rewriting the email address of builder to the
commits mailing list:

diff --git a/email-addresses b/email-addresses
index 8e4f2cb..62172ee 100644
--- a/email-addresses
+++ b/email-addresses
@@ -7,3 +7,4 @@
 #user: someone@isp.com
 #otheruser: someoneelse@anotherisp.com
+builder: debian-edu-commits@lists.alioth.debian.org

I hope this make sure we get emails about CD build failures etc.  If
there is a better way to fix this, I would be happy for others to fix it
differently.  The builder user is not supposed to get any emails, so
there is and really should not be no working mail address for it.

Happy hacking
Petter Reinholdtsen

In postfix you would handle that via a sender_canonical map (rewrite the sender
to an address specified in this /etc/postfix/sender_canonical map file.

The rewritten mail address would then be a mail account on a host that has a proper mail server setup (with MX record and all).

Maybe your fix is equivalent to that, but I really have no to-be-taken-serious clue about exim4 (there is always stuff to learn...).
