Filtering out delivery status failed


(Carlo Kok) #1

Would it be possible for the email in code to filter out delivery status failure mails? We sent out a mailing last night and have 200 failures as posts in discourse now:

(Any suggestions on getting these out in the first place would also be appreciated,especially the 200 notification entries)

Yep, they should be filtered already because they have a header state of Auto-Submitted

Looks like there’s a lot of broken systems out there then :slight_smile:

I see mails with X-Auto-Response-Suppress: All (from exhange)

Some just have:

Content-Type: multipart/report; report-type=delivery-status;
	boundary="110e4b6c-159b-4262-b2ca-cbe359515e6a"

as content type (and no other identifying headers)

QMail just sends a reject mail from From: MAILER-DAEMON@somedomain or From: mailer-daemon@somedomain.

Another one: X-QQ-HolidayReply: true

(I setup a sieve filter to block mailer-daemon & postmaster locally which cuts down 99% of these btw)
