Can someone from systems@ please take a look at this? The last set of security releases did not make it to php-announce, because nobody approves messages to this list anymore. Nikita

It's not about additional moderators, but rather that there has been so much spam, that it was infeasible to check all of it for acceptable announcements. The main problem, though, seems that the moderation mails are no longer sent (I received the last one on 2019-06-04). Christoph

When sending an email to php-announce@ ..

ezmlm-store:_info:_qp_26188/ezmlm-clean:_info:_qp_26206/Old_format_or_corrupted_index._Run_ezmlm-idx!_(#5.3.0)/ezmlm-warn:_info:_qp_26212/ezmlm-warn:_info:_qp_26219/ezmlm-warn:_info:_qp_26220/did_0+0+10/

I ran ezmlm-idx, looks better now.

Regarding delivery attempts to:

cmbecker69@gmx.de -> 

failure: 212.227.17.5_failed_after_I_sent_the_message./Remote_host_said:_554-Transaction_failed/554-Reject_due_to_policy_restrictions./554_For_explanation_visit_http://postmaster.gmx.com/en/error-messages?ip=76.75.200.58&c=hd/

GMX rejects the messages from lists.php.net, possibly due to excessive spam from that IP address.

Cheers

We have enabled the normal php.net spam protections for lists.php.net - this is test message 1.

And this would be test message 2. Sorry about this.

Looking good (test 3).

Please alert systems@php.net if you have issues sending emails to *@lists.php.net.

Confirming that most spam got nicely reduced now. Thank you for enabling spam filters. There are now only few of those spam mails passing through but I guess reading one or two messages with pharmacy and similar content can be ignored and deleted on the mods side.

Oh, another thing. Increasing number of moderators here (on mailing lists) doesn't help in any way. Still each moderator has the same amount of emails to go through and the work load is not distributed but duplicated. If we all understand this. But hopefully the relevant emails could be approved on time anyhow. Cheers. -- Peter Kokot
