as part of our membership process, we also would like to give
@libreoffice.org e-mail forwarders to our approved members. Thanks to
the folks from Heinlein Support in Berlin, who offered to take care of
the mail forwarding and to program a web tool to enable users to
configure the forwarding!
In order to be able to use two different mail servers -- one for
mailing lists, and one for the mail forwarders -- we have to change
the addresses of a few mailing lists.
In a nutshell: All lists currently known as @libreoffice.org will in
the future be known as @global.libreoffice.org
firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
are you saying that we now will need to change the sending address to this?
So if we are sending a new email to the marketing, or users, lists, we
will have to add the "global." the the address?
But addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org will by unchanged?
email@example.com => firstname.lastname@example.org
email@example.com => firstname.lastname@example.org
email@example.com => firstname.lastname@example.org
You do *not* have to un- or resubscribe from any lists, as the list of
all recipients will be automatically transferred to the new addresses.
The subject prefix, like [libreoffice-website], will also stay the
*same*. What *will* change is the address you have to send e-mails to,
and the headers like List-Post and List-ID. So, in case you filter
your e-mails based on the headers, you *do* need to act. This is most
likely the case if you use a local mail client like Thunderbird.
Webmail services like Google Mail usually do *not* make use of these
The change will be effective during the day of
Thursday, June 9th
so we have to do the changeover that day, and not before or after that date?
I will send a follow-up e-mail when the addresses have changed.
Immediately after that, assume the old addresses will stop working. I
will try to set them as aliases for a few days, but I cannot guarantee
it will work out.
However, *no* e-mail will be lost -- in case there is no alias in
place, you will receive a bounce message and can re-send the mail again.
Sorry for these inconveniences, but they will help us in providing
e-mail forwarders for our members.
In case of questions, feel free to ask me directly, or on the website@
