Subject: RE: [chairs] Anti-gen zapping XML attachments!

David, all,


In the interest of clarity, allow me to point out a few things in reply:


  1. We have been filtering mail to the lists and all OASIS addresses for years.  I don’t think you are suggesting we don’t, given that ~98% of all traffic to our servers is spam.
  2. Your attachment *was not rejected* because it was XML, zipped, or some combination of those attributes.  Those factors are not considered in filtering.
  3. If you are interested in learning why your message was filtered (as a false positive or otherwise) and allowing us to tweak the filter, may I suggest you follow the instructions received in your bounce message and submit the original message to not-spam@oasis-open.org for our analysis.


Hope that helps,

Subject: [chairs] Anti-gen zapping XML attachments!


Just found out today that OASIS now has an anti-virus filter on its list email - and it zapped my ZIP because it saw XML in there.


Is everyone else thinking this is a very bad idea for a XML standards group?


Thanks, DW
