Re: [forum] subscription mail broken & change email address is confusing

whocarez, thanks for analysing, I’ve reported your post so the forum admins don’t miss it.

I wanted to register a different email address, but I saw that again the first stood there, not the one I had registered and confirmed yesterday.

You mean the change you mentioned here didn’t work, right?

Why emails from the forum could be classified as spam?

You might have missed the post above yours, sounds like a thread to tug at, though I know too little about server configuration.

The mail server should be configured to work under the name textpattern.com. Thus the reverse lookup for 37.153.96.164 will work and mails can be delivered.

Yes.

Now, the second address seems to be registered. But, the first time after that, when I try to log in, instead of the username is the new email address in the autofilled username field. All this (included what I mentioned in the first port) is very confusing.

Re: [forum] subscription mail broken & change email address is confusing

the problem still persists!

Jan 18 18:15:19 whocarez-server postfix/smtpd[8260]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown[37.153.96.164]: 554 5.7.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your reverse hostname, [37.153.96.164]; from=<forum@localdomain.localdomain> to=<kontakt@whocarez-server> proto=ESMTP helo=<textpattern.localdomain>

Thus there isn’t a qualified email address, only “forum@localdomain.localdomain”, the helo answer textpattern.localdomain is also not valid and the reverse lookup for 37.153.96.164 fails.

if postfix is used, then myhostname, myorigin, mydestination should be set to something like textpattern.com and the dns settings should guarantee, that a reverse lookup shows textpattern.com to work properly. At the moment dig -x 37.153.96.164 shows the following:

; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> -x 37.153.96.164
;; global options: +cmd

Thus there is no answer section.

I still have the same problem although I had tried with several functioning email addresses.

Re: [forum] subscription mail broken & change email address is confusing

Hi Robert,

if you find some time, would you please also have a look at what might go wrong between my moderator privileges and display of menu items, like I’ve explained here? That’d be very helpful!

Re: [forum] subscription mail broken & change email address is confusing

Reverse PTR is now set:

$ dig -x 37.153.96.164
[...]
;; ANSWER SECTION:
164.96.153.37.in-addr.arpa. 3600 IN     PTR     textpattern.com.
[...]
;; WHEN: Tue Jan 21 03:42:47 2014

Postfix setting myhostname is now textpattern.com.

Please report whether these changes pacify your spam filters.

Re: [forum] subscription mail broken & change email address is confusing

Thanks Robert, emails are delivered, also the old ones.

Jan 21 13:53:52 WHOCAREZ-SERVER postfix/smtpd[20864]: 883633F6801E: client=textpattern.com[37.153.96.164]
Jan 21 13:53:52 WHOCAREZ-SERVER postfix/cleanup[20882]: 883633F6801E: message-id=<20140121124418.639115CD09@textpattern.com>
Jan 21 13:53:52 WHOCAREZ-SERVER postfix/qmgr[29898]: 883633F6801E: from=<forum@com.com>, size=1382, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

anyway the from field is still weird. Should be “forum@textpattern.com” instead of “forum@com.com”

Do you have any hint where Postfix might get that value from?

Re: [forum] subscription mail broken & change email address is confusing

hm, $mydestination and $myorigin should also contain textpattern.com. Probably /etc/mailname contains com.

just take a look at the output of postconf as root

Added a few additional bits here and there now…

$ postconf  | grep mydomain
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
mydomain = textpattern.com
myorigin = $mydomain

Looks reasonable.
