Everytime somebody posts a comment I get a message. Whyever? Anybody else facing this?

Strolled over from Aishwarya’s blog.

That bounce merely says that Rediff does not like the email address which sent it the message. Did someone with the email address ironlove@rediffmail.com comment on that thread?

If someone did, they may have marked it as spam.

I suggest contacting postmaster@wordpress.com for help, or postmaster@rediffmail.com

Now if I could justify this sense of Deja Vu …

(That email address won’t work, Aishwarya knows who I am)

Sorry, what email address? 🙂

And I am ironlove@rediffmail.com. Its sending that mail to ME :(lol.

3. Anonymouse - March 5, 2007

Hmmm, in that case, can you paste the full raw bounce?

What is probably happening is like this:

WordPress is sending you a notification using your email address as the envelope sender (Bear with me on the technical terms, if you need a tutorial, I’ll write one).

Rediffmail is rejecting this email because they don’t expect rediffmail envelopes to originate outside of rediffmail.

This generates a bounce message on the WordPress server(s), which gets sent to the envelope sender. You then get the bounce message.

In non-technical language (W is WordPress, R is Rediffmail)
W: Hi, i am WordPress, sending you a message from ironlove@rediffmail.com to ironlove@rediffmail.com
R: Erm, You aren’t allowed to send email from rediffmail.com. Buzz off.
W: Oops, Rediffmail rejected the message, I need to notify the sender.

W: Hi, I am WordPress, sending you a message from to ironlove@rediffmail.com
R: That’s a valid sender and recipient, let it in.

(The is the NULL sender and is used to send bounces).

(This one asks for an email address, I am using the default example one).

Stupid HTML!

W: Hi, I am WordPress, sending you a message from <>to ironlove@rediffmail.com
R: That’s a valid sender and recipient, let it in.

lol, thanks for the explanation(of which I only understood the gaga-googoo version 🙂 )
I wonder why it didn’t happen earlier though. :think:

6. Anonymouse - March 7, 2007

WordPress changed something? Ask them?

7. sporadicblogger - March 7, 2007

Hm, thats a good idea. I will, thanks:).

And who are you, btw 😀 I keep forgetting to ask aishwarya,lol.
