Multiple Community Bulletin emails.


I wasn't able to find any other way to contact anyone at LQ, so I thought I'd try this.

I think it was about six months ago, we started receiving duplicate copies of the weekly (?) Community Bulletin emails. They've slowly kept increasing, so now we're getting like five or six of the same bulletin each time.

Can somebody at LQ maybe take a look into this, please?

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. For the last 3 bulletins, the first 500 or so members subscribed have been getting multiple copies. We're looking into this now.

I was rather surprised about the content of the recent Bulletin. The "Was this post helpful?" link and the "Mark this thread as solved"-link are anything but new, IIRC.

Well, I just got my 9th one...

Have you checked your /var/spool/mqueue lately? Maybe you have some messages stuck in there that are causing you some problems.

Just a thought.

It's related to the script that sends out the newsletter. You should not receive any additional messages related to this bulletin.

Please remove the links from your signature. You tend to write semi-related posts, which, together with some questionable links in your signature, makes you look like a spammer.
