Description Hari Prasad Nadig 2007-11-01 19:58:23 UTC
I've been a moderator on three lists - wikikn-l, wikisa-l, Wikimediaindia-l. 

But somehow mails sent to addresses like wikimediacz-l-owner @ (and marked spam) is being relayed to my email id. There has been a lot of spam of late.

another spam relayed via listserver

Attaching example of another spam headers. Seems to me that the e-mail should have been simply bounced at the following entry point by something like

Received: from ([]:4687
	by with esmtp (Exim 4.69)
	(envelope-from <>)
	id 1KxiIL-0004O0-BV; Wed, 05 Nov 2008 13:19:39 +0000
Comment 3 Fred Vassard 2009-09-10 17:13:29 UTC
Improvements have been made on the spam detection / prevention software. This should be less of a problem now.
However, eliminating all spams is virtually impossible.
Please re-open this ticket if it continues to be an issue for you.
