Description bert.meersma 2006-01-04 21:23:13 UTC
The email adresses of all people who write mails to the mailinglists are exposed
on the web in the mailinglist archives. This results in a massive quantity of
spam. I recently got a new email adress that I only use for OOo mailinglists.
Within 6 weeks the spam started to come. I really urge the ones concerned to do
something about this.

Hello Karthik,

Can you provide me with an update of this?
Comment 4 bert.meersma 2007-01-01 13:05:32 UTC
By the looks of it, Karthiksp is disables (at least his account is). Who takes
care of this issue now?

This enhancement request has been considered for inclusion in the future CEE
release. Support will monitor this internally and will review it in the
corresponding release.

CollabNet Support is currently reviewing the issues under Resolved-Later. If the
issues are fixed currently in any of the present CEE releases, then it will be
marked as Resolved-Fixed.

There might be a few issues which might not be in our future roadmap which might
be closed as Wontfix unless it does not lie under any custom request.

Leaving it open for more validation
Comment 11 Unknown 2009-01-26 01:18:15 UTC
This has been fixed in CEE 5.2 p1. in Discussion Services. Marking this as fixed.
Comment 12 john.mccreesh 2009-05-23 10:31:50 UTC
This isn't fixed, as a casual inspection of any mailing list message will prove
- e.g.
where the email address of the poster is clearly visible in plain text

As desc12 states, this issue is fixed in CEE version 5.2 Patch 1. Currently, is running CEE version 4.5.2 Patch 4.

Hence will get this fix when the site gets upgraded to CEE
5.2 Patch 1.

Marking this back to 'RESOLVED-FIXED'.

"this issue is fixed in CEE version 5.2 Patch 1. Currently,
is running CEE version 4.5.2 Patch 4."

i.e. it may be RESOLVED, but it isn't FIXED. It's OPEN until the new version is
live. Have we even got a date for that?

Thanks - John

We have added the Target Milestone as CEE 5.2.

When the site is upgraded those issues which are closed as Resolved-Fixed will
be queried for Target milestone marker & issue verification  will be done.This
is part of our upgrade process.

If this is re-opened ,it will be out of loop & we will loose track of this one.

Kindly co-operate.
