As the listadmin, I&#39;d like to apologize for some recent lists mail loss.<br>
<br>
A spammer managed to get a subscription confirmation email send to a<br>
spamtrap address, that promptly caused the lists server to be listed on<br>
a blacklist for 12-14 hours.<br>
<br>
During that time, approximately 2000 list deliveries were rejected due<br>
to the RBL. First recorded rejection was around Feb 1 00:20 UTC, last<br>
recorded was Feb 1 13:35 UTC.<br>
<br>
I&#39;ve included full log details in a blogpost:<br>
<a href="http://robbat2.livejournal.com/236942.html" target="_blank">http://robbat2.livejournal.com/236942.html</a><br>
<br>
If you know anybody that runs similar spamtraps, please ask them to<br>
ensure list confirmation requests are NOT treated as spam.<br>
