Lost emails

Stephen Frost
Greetings,

Due to a mistaken blacklist, certain emails to the PostgreSQL mailing
lists never got through to either the list subscribers or to our
archives.  Unfortunately, those emails were not kept and are not
available on our systems any longer.  Hopefully they still exist in the
sent mail for those users and they'll be able to re-send them to the
list for them to be posted and included in our archives.

We have provided what information we do have regarding the lost emails,
specifically the the message-ids impacted.

We have removed the mistaken blacklist (done a while ago now, actually)
and are looking at ways to reduce the risk of this happening again.

Thanks,

Stephen

Might be useful to state in which timeframe that could have happened.

I didn’t have a lot of time for the emails I sent out earlier but wanted to get them out with a note to www about what happened.

Note that the message ids for each individual impacted were sent to that individual.

I’m afk now but the blacklist was installed at about 2019-04-29 08:15:00 UTC and removed a couple hours ago at this point, don’t have the exact time easily available from mobile.

Thanks,

Stephen
