Re: [anup123] Bounces And AR In reply to

There is no such problem when a mail from AR enabled GM account is sent to another AR enabled GM account.

The problem only comes when the systems sends a delivery failure report to AR enabled GM account. So loop detect fails when there is a System Delivery Status mail to a Auto Reply Enabled GM account else it is fine. Logically AR should not trigger if the To Address is not proper.

I tried the same with my own account and the following is the status after enabling Auto Reply:

Header Of Delivery Status

Return-Path: <>
Received: from localhost (localhost [])

server1.sample.com with dsn; Sun, 05 Oct 2003 23:51:47

From: "Courier mail server at server1.sample.com" <@>
Subject: NOTICE: mail delivery status.
To: user@sample.com
Content-Type: multipart/report; report-type=delivery-status; boundary="=_courier_0"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Message-Id: <courier.3F806151.000007A4@server1.sample.com>

Your message to the following recipients cannot be delivered:

mx1.mail.yahoo.com []:
>>> DATA
<<< 554 delivery error: dd Sorry your message to shekhar_devi@yahoo.com cannot be delivered. This account has been disabled or discontinued [#102]. - mta136.mail.scd.yahoo.com


And then the Auto Reply is triggered which causes a infinte loop of mail Delivery Status Reports landing in user@sample.com every 15 minutes. Please note that the actual domains etc has been replaced with sample names.
