#11639 Newly created email alias for gnome-sig@lists.fedoraproject.org is bouncing back
Closed: Fixed 5 months ago by zlopez. Opened 5 months ago by tpopela.

Together with @kalev we're trying to create a new email alias for gnome-sig@lists.fedoraproject.org. Kalev went to the admin interface and added a new alias gnome-sig-untriaged@lists.fedoraproject.org through "Acceptable aliases" option. It's been few hours and the emails are still bouncing back. Do we have to wait more or we've used wrong option in the admin interface to setup the alias or there's something else going on?


@tpopela I have no idea about admin interface that can manage email aliases.
But i would say, it should be managed by fasjson role .

Let me push PR for that

Is the new alias that was just set up for @fedoraproject.org?

I tried sending email to gnome-sig-untriaged@fedoraproject.org (and gnome-sig-untriaged@lists.fedoraproject.org as well, just in case), but both are bouncing for me.

I think it's rejected because gnome-sig-untriaged is not subscribed to the list members
@kevin any advice ?

@kalev could you try to add gnome-sig-untriaged to the list members ??

No I don't think that's it, because it says 'User unknown in local recipient table'; it doesn't say that the sender's address is rejected.

My guess is that we just need to wait for https://pagure.io/fedora-infra/ansible/blob/main/f/roles/fasjson/files/fasjson-aliases.cron cron job to run newaliases.

This has run now, can you (re) test?

Works as expected now. Thanks!
