Email delivery problems to Google

January 25, 2021 at 9:40 PM

Email Mailing lists

Resolved in under a minute.

Google mail servers are currently bouncing some emails coming from @torproject.org, as sent from our main mail server (eugeni) and third-party servers. This includes lists but may not include all our mail servers (the donation platform, for example, seems to still work).

We are still investigating the problem, followup in issue 40149.

Update, 22:16UTC: it looks like only some emails are being bounced, especially a particular email from a particular sysadmin which made him jump the gun and post this disruption notice. We might actually be in our normal “somewhat disrupted” delivery situation. Stay tuned for more happy days.

Update, 2021-01-27 16:51UTC: it turns out this was a false alarm, and concerns only a single Google group that is refusing emails. Emails are being delivered to Google fine.
