When a information e-mail is send from hemiptera and that e-mail is

rejected/bounced by the receivier's mail server, then the rejection

e-mail is not recognised and get's handled as normal mail.

This leads to spamming of all people's e-mail accounts which are

registered for a bug.

I was the one whose email address was "published" onto the bugtracker system.

However, I have not received any mail from *@bugs.linux-forks.de , and the help page from my email page ( http://mail.live.com/mail/troubleshooting.aspx#errors. [HE1EUR04FT003.eop-eur04.prod.protection.outlook.com ) doesn't appear to have anything useful about it.

As a workaround, I think we can make a list of autoreply email addresses to prevent such cases from happening again.

(Also, can you please remove these spam messages from the bugtracker? I don't want more people to see them or my email address.)

Sorry that I accidentally triggered it again because I didn't notice the email address when sending.

I'm quite aware that:

1) Hemiptera failed to block such emails (#129)

2) Such Smart{SpamProtection/SecurityService/etc} fails to detect the bounce, so they themselves also become spammers.

3) The mailer-daemon should not be giving out other users' email addresses.

4) Users are not informed by email providers and fail to notice the problem.
