Mail Headers
Reply with quote

Sorry for another mail that does not contain anything about OSG.

But I can't resist since the word "headers" was mentioned in the
"Migrating to Forum" thread.


After the OSG mailinglist changed from <osg-users@openscenegraph.net> to
<osg-users@lists.openscenegraph.org> my mail client has complained a bit
(Opera mail-client). I think I've tracked it down in the mail header.

The reason is that the "List-Id:"-element in the header does not comply
with RFC standards.

The current header looks like this:

List-Id: "OpenSceneGraph Users" <osg-users-openscenegraph.org>

But I think it should be changed to this:

List-Id: "OpenSceneGraph Users" <osg-users.lists.openscenegraph.org>

I.e. the format: list-label "." list-id-namespace

Where, list-label: a list label (osg-users)
list-id-namespace: domain-name (lists.openscenegraph.org)


The disadvantage to change the List-Id is:

1. Some sofisticated mail-clients could recognize the list as a different
list.


The advantages is:

1. It will comply to RFC 2919
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2919.txt

2. My (and potentially others) mail-clients (that strictly utilize RFC
standards) will be more happy.



Comments?

Hi Joakim,

I have just looked at the admin pages for
and can't any controls specifically
for List-Id. The closest mention I can find is:

Should messages from this mailing list include the RFC 2369 (i.e.
List-*) headers? Yes is highly recommended.

To which the setting is Yes, so in theory mailman should be adding
standard compliant List-* headers. Is this a bug in Mailman? I
really couldn't say, while I I am the admin on mailing list I don't
have have the expertise to comment deeply about mailman or even access
to the low levels of the server to go change mailman version - it's
Dreamhost that maintain the actual server that runs mailman.

Robert.
