ALE mailing list bounce issues

Filed at 7:26 am under by Robert

The ALE mailing list software is currently experiencing a problem delivering messages to multiple people, which has resulted in it blocking multiple subscribers for excessive bounces to their email accounts. The problem’s currently being investigated. If you’ve noticed that you haven’t received any email from the ALE list recently but are still interested in receiving mail from the list, please log in to the list subscription settings page at http://mail.ale.org/mailman/options/ale (yes, it’s HTTP and not HTTPS, and the password you use for the ALE mailing list should definitely NOT be similar to any other passwords you use anywhere else; Mailman stores them all in plain text so that it can send it back to you if you forget, and by default sends a monthly reminder email of your password) and confirm that the “Mail Delivery” option is set to “Enabled”. Thank you!

Abstract:
There’s lots of choices today when it comes to managing and automating your infrastructure.  With an ever growing demand for  automation, event-driven infrastructure, and split-second reactions, SaltStack is an outstanding choice to maintain your farm.  Whether your farm is 5 snowflake pets or more than 10,000 head of cattle, consider spreading a little Salt across your servers to make everything taste a little better.
