Hi all,

Does anyone know what is the cause of all the spam from the announce
mailing list? I'm not sure who is getting it, but I'm getting a few emails
a minute sometimes, it's rather annoying ...

Can someone do some magic, and make it go away please ?

Cheers
Joe

I can confirm that the spam to this mailing list has drastically (by at least factor 10) increased since a week ago.

Hello,

didn't get any; should ask over folks; I suspect it originates from a
frustrated individual
which didn't found anything else smarter  than spams to achieve his pity
vendetta.

Did you kept the original ones?

tschüss.

I have a spam folder full of them. They're not "please help me" so much as "enter this contest to win some prize". -Sara

These mails only goes to moderators of the php-announce@ list, typically RMs and the like moderates this list hence why only a handful has gotten them, each moderation mail contains the original mail and addresses to approve or reject the message. -- regards, Kalle Sommer Nielsen kalle@php.net

quarantine.

100+ daily spam emails here also. Considering that these don't get to other mailing lists, they can get regulated probably... -- Peter Kokot

Filter created with * from these lists going to spam directory now. Case solved. Apologies in advance if I miss something important on that list because this is not a list for my standards if so many spam messages can pass through. Regards. -- Peter Kokot

I've did basically the same. The only relevant exception is when RMs send a mail to the announcement list, in which case they should watch their spam folder. -- Christoph M. Becker
