Dear All,

Mark has problem sending mail to <a href="mailto: ... at centos dot org"> ... at centos dot org</a> list... He has trouble
with flash plugin on CentOS 6, please, take a look at his e-mail below.
I'll try to see what I can do to help, but what I can do definitely is no
match to Experts on this list.

Thanks in advance!

Valeri

Hi, Valeri,

I've tried, twice, to post to the list today, and they neither show up,
*nor* do I get a blocked message - they just go to /dev/null.

The second was just a test, the first was asking if anyone else was
seeing, with CentOS 6 (updated) flash-plugin crashing every 10-15 min.
And there's no downgrade for it.

Mark's original message asking about flash-plugin did eventually show up,
as I'm sure people have seen by now.

Looking at its Received headers, it appears it got stuck for 5 hours at
Mark's email provider. It was submitted to host290.hostmonster.com using
squirrelmail at 18:56 GMT, but didn't leave that machine for the next hop
(cmgw2) until 23:55 GMT.

Hope this helps!
Cheers
Tony

Isn't there an email address for the list admins?

<a href="https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos" title="https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos">https://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos</a>

<a href="mailto:centos- ... at centos dot org">centos- ... at centos dot org</a>

It's a bit unproductive to trouble list members about list problems.

Not that I disagree but lists.centos.org and mail.centos.org are the
same box; it is likely that if someone is having issues getting a post
to the list they will have similar problems mailing <a href="mailto: ... at centos dot org"> ... at centos dot org</a> as
well.

Thanks John.

Moreover, I didn't intend to ask help with access to list, what I asked
was to look into technical problem the person has on his machine which he
himself was not able to pass over to the list. This ours is the only list
of technical mail lists I am being bashed on for merely sending to list
someone's e-mail with non-trivial _technical_ _question_ which he is
unable to send to list himself.

This phrase you quote was mere explanation why I forwarded somebody's else
message, and by no means intended to be request about the list, to the
contrary, about some software on CentOS system.

Creative editing is bad when one pills some phrase totally out of the
message context like you did ;-( So we are both bad about list etiquette
(even though I doubt I am ;-)
