It just occurred to me that mail to gettor@… might get caught by our greylisting. If that is so, we're slowing down responses when we don't need to be.

If so, perhaps we can whitelist gmail addresses in that case, since we're going to be doing dkim on them anyway?

same with mail to bridges@…, I guess?

Correct. Email sent to @tpo will be greylisted. If they email @gettor.tpo, it will not be greylisted.

Same with bridges@tpo. If they email bridges@…, it will not be greylisted.

We don't currently tell people to use the longer hostnames, and I think those instructions will be quite confusing.

Can you whitelist incoming email from to those addresses, since we're doing the dkim checks on them anyway?

Well, unless we stopped checking dkim on gettor mails. Ugh. But checking a dkim header if it's there is different from requiring a dkim header. Also, we do check it for bridges.

We can revisit this when we have a new gettor server. I think greylisting email is a fine queuing mechanism and don't see a problem. If people want an instantly interactive service for gettor or bridges, perhaps we should develop an IMbot rather than using SMTP.
