Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

If you ever see this message:
MAJORDOMO ABORT (mj_majordomo)!! 
HOSTILE ADDRESS (no x400 c=) nts/admin@example.org

don't worry, it's not an attack. It's just someone using an address which is slight less common.  You can tell majordomo to accept it with a configuration setting.   In /usr/local/majordomo/majordomo.cf, you will find something like this:

#
#  If you will be receiving x400 addresses without the c= or a[dm]=
#  parts set the $no_true_x400 variable to 1.  This will disable 
#  checking for "c=" and "a[dm]=" pieces.     
#
$no_true_x400 = 1; 

Set the flag to 1, and your problem will go away.
