Yeah, it's not pretty. But I'm not sure we're gonna have much choice if Gmail changes their policy. > Fwiw I'm all for dropping the footer and the [HACKERS] which are both > ill-advised imho. But modifying the From: header seems really broken. IMO the footer is a *very* good idea; when we started using the current form of that, it greatly reduced the amount of "how do I unsubscribe" noise. But having said that, it probably wouldn't need to be on every message to be effective. I personally like the subject-munging but could live without it. [ thinks for a bit... ] I wonder whether we could do something like this: * Leave the From: and Reply-To: alone. * Add the footer only if the message isn't DKIM-signed. * Give up Subject-munging. (Munging only non-signed messages would be way too confusing.) I think that would put us in a situation where DKIM signatures would still pass, at least unless the source insisted on signing Sender: too. We might still have some issues with SPF checks, but not breaking DKIM would be a step forward. If things change to the point where only a small minority of messages get the footers because most people are using DKIM, then we might have to reconsider that part. But that seems far away yet. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
