Hey, if you're going to quote me, at least quote me correctly. I didn't
say it was unmonitored, we do monitor all bounces we get in order to
process the NDR's (thousands each day) Like I said on the phone, our
emails have completely valid envelope fields, and we update our database
to "clean" out the bad email addresses that people often like to sign up
with. This doesn't break any RFC that I know of.
We'd just prefer that you don't reply to our CRM messages via SMTP,
that's all - hence the "please do not reply to this" at the bottom of
all our outbound emails, and the auto-responder if you do happen to send
mail to these addresses. If this breaks an RFC, point me at the
appropriate place, and I'll change things to fit them.
As for being cocky, I can handle that, I've been called worse.
Misc small online company.

I've just had a call from a rather cocky person at the company.
They claim it is allright and common. I disagree, with the exception
is common among spammers*. Hence why I'm asking other NZNOG members.
Reply emails go to an auto responder which the company person says is
This issue was bought to my attention when I wrote an email to this
though as we handle (I estimate) several thousand emails per day from
company, I ahve decided to investigate the matter further.
*I am in no way suggesting said company is a spammer, but we're under
pressure from customers to increase the level of 'protection' and
their emails, they could quite possibly score a few bayes points.
> In investigating an issue involving a large
online NZ company's
email - I read
RFC822 which I have quoted below.
I note that this company is currently making use of apparently
unmonitored return addresses which generate an auto reply.
Are you saying they are sending (MFROM) Addresses which don't exist
cannot be bounced back to etc). Or MFROM a valid email
reads (ie noreply@XXXXX)
