**You** were not quoted. Nowhere was yours or your company's name mentioned.
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.
That is why this is being discussed on NZNOG - because based on MY reading, it
does. But I feel it is important so I have decided to seek the opinion of
industry peers. Again, neither you nor your company was named, so it is
strictly a technical / operational discussion and one with wider relevance.
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.
