#123New mail address ineffective

My main account is ertes. I have changed my e-mail address in my user preferences. Even though the change was reflected in the UI, it seems that I'm not getting any mails from hub.darcs.net. This is particularly unfortunate right now, because the only host that knows my ertes password is currently broken, so I really need the password recovery mail.

  • Thanks for the report. I see that your mail provider (at least) is rejecting all darcs hub mails with this message:

    Mar 2 08:01:44 joyful postfix/smtp[20338]: 40EE91705D: to=<...@gmx.de&gt;, relay=mx00.emig.gmx.net[]:25, delay=0.92, delays=0.03/0.01/0.89/0, dsn=4.0.0, status=deferred (host mx00.emig.gmx.net[] refused to talk to me: 554-gmx.net (mxgmx012) Nemesis ESMTP Service not available 554-No SMTP service 554-Bad DNS PTR resource record. 554 For explanation visit http://postmaster.gmx.com/en/error-messages?ip=

    I've had a look at this but I'm still unclear - is it a DNS misconfiguration or a mail server blacklisting ? Is it to do with joyful.com (the hub.darcs.net server) or darcs.net (the from address of darcs hub emails is darcsden@hub.darcs.net) ? Perhaps you or your mail provider's tech support has an idea ?

  • According to the error message they seem to assume that the IP address of the originating server is a dynamically allocated address. If this is not the case, then you or your mail provider should contact GMX. They are one of the most widely used mail providers in Germany, so it's possible that many darcshub users are affected by this problem.
