Mailman Bounce problem

Postby Jake Sjet » Sat Jul 03, 2010 6:24 pm

I've got a problem. One of my players, who has up until now been able to post normally, can no longer do so. Every time they post, I get:

The attached message was received as a bounce, but either the bounce format was not recognized, or no member addresses could be extracted from it. This mailing list has been configured to send all unrecognized bounce messages to the list administrator(s).

They're using the same email address, and mail-string address, as they always have. I have unsubscribed, and then re-subscribed them, to no avail. Anyone got any hints, tips or fixes?

Hi Sjet,

I will pass this along to the mailstring guru and see if we can't get it sorted out. Has the player tried being subscribed with a different address?


Cheers

Was hoping to go that route as a option of last resort, but that's plan A for today.

Did they recently change mail clients or anything like that, Sjet? If they did, it's possible their new client is sending part of the message as an attachment and the mailstring is misinterpreting.

Could ya perhaps break that down into English, sorry but to me anything more complex than 'use Gmail' ends up sounding to my ear as witchcraft.

I think he means have they started/ stopped using thyings like outlook express (putooie) Thunderbird etc... programs to handle their mail rather than homtail etc online mails...

may also be as simple as him leaving the message in that he is replying to, and using forward instead of reply..

make sure that he hasn't left fwd in the mail, and has cut out any indicators of the message including forwarded content... lots of mail servers rightly identified these as common spammer things...
