@jwe: Are you managing the dreamhost account?


Do you think they could help setting up the email forward of 
maintainers@octave.org to octave-maintainers@gnu.org correctly?
At the moment gnu.org rejects some of the messages because the sending domain 
and the IP of the dreamhost server mismatch (see above).

I'm not sure what to ask them to do.

I have many forwards for each list on the server (not sure that all are
needed, but I added them to be complete since all of these are used by

    octave-maintainers@octave.org  octave-maintainers@gnu.org   
    octave-maintainers-admin@octave.org  octave-maintainers-admin@gnu.org
    octave-maintainers-bounces@octave.org  octave-maintainers-bounces@gnu.org
    octave-maintainers-confirm@octave.org  octave-maintainers-confirm@gnu.org
    octave-maintainers-join@octave.org  octave-maintainers-join@gnu.org
    octave-maintainers-leave@octave.org  octave-maintainers-leave@gnu.org
    octave-maintainers-owner@octave.org  octave-maintainers-owner@gnu.org
    octave-maintainers-request@octave.org  octave-maintainers-request@gnu.org

To be honest, I thought that the mail server on octave.org was managed by 
dreamhost. But from what you've written, I gather that you manage mailman on 
that server yourself?

The mailman mailing list manager runs on a gnu.org system. There is also an smtp mail server running on dreamhost that handles the mail for the octave.org domain. It forwards the mail sent to @octave.org addresses that are used for the mailing lists (like those shown above) to the @gnu.org addresses where mailmain processes the list mail.

If that isn't possible, maybe we could also ask gnu.org to whitelist the IP of 
the mailserver on octave.org.

I will ask about that.
