How does <email>@cpan.org work?
In the recent year I notice more and more instances that mail to firstname.lastname@example.org is silently swallowed. I know this because I communicate with the senders through other channels, and I've even received forwards of copies of emails which as far as the sender is concerned are delivered. I am also increasingly hearing the same story from my PAUSE-peers. Bottom line: it seems that the SMTPD cpan.mx.develooper.com is configured to do rather aggressive *silent* spam filtering.
I am writing this for 2 reasons:
- I want to gauge whether the problem is indeed pervasive, or it is just bad luck on my part.
- I want to solicit opinions on how to properly fix this if it is indeed a large-scale problem.
I personally would prefer to get all my mail forwarded my way directly, unfiltered and I would deal with it however I deem appropriate. Of course there are bound to be differing opinions on this.
Anyhow - please share your experience, both positive and negative!
