openSUSE Mailinglist: Check for Accidental Unsubscribtions

February 4th, 2008 by

Last week we had a small problem at lists.opensuse.org which unsubscribed a couple of mailing list members by accident. We’re really sorry about this and hope that everybody subscribes again manually.

Henne our mailadmin wrote the following email and tried to send it out to everybody that might be affected:

there was a lists.opensuse.org maintenance process hanging (undetected) for a very long time. This process continued a couple of minutes ago.
Unfortunately because of the long delay some calculations went wrong (bounce times). This had the effect that the list software may have you

Please check your subscriptions. To do so you can simply subscribe again by sending a mail to <listname>+subscribe@opensuse.org. In case your are still subscribed the system will tell you about it. In case you are not anymore subscription is exactly what you want :)

Sorry for the inconvenience. The underlying problem has been fixed.

I noticed on the mailing lists that some people did not get Henne’s text above and therefore decided to publish it here again. So, if you miss traffic in your inbox for some mailing lists, please follow the instructions above.

Thanks – and sorry again for this,

    I’m unable to re-subscribe, I’m not getting any responses from the mailing lists.

    Is it really working again?

    Are you really mailing to <listname>+subscribe@opensuse.org and not <listname>@opensuse.org?

    you need to send me a mail to opensuse+owner@opensuse.org or i will never be able to help you.
