hey,

i don't know when this change happened, but i see bugs.devuan.org using
" X-Mailer: MIME-tools 5.509 (Entity 5.509) "

which is clarified as spam in some systems, because of "Entity".
a very common rule for mass mailers in email header_checks.. our own rule :

/^X-Mailer:.*\b(0001|Aristotle|Avalanche|Blaster|Bomber|Crescent
Internet Tool|DejaVu|DiffondiCool|E-Mail Delivery Agent|Emailer
Platinum|eMerge|Entity|Extractor|UltraMail|Sonic|Floodgate|GeoList|GOTO
Software
Sarbacane|Mach10|MailWorkz|MassE-Mail|MaxBulk.Mailer|MDaemon|MegaPro|Aureate|MultiMailer|News
Breaker Pro|SmartMailer|StormPort|SuperMail-2|Bluecom|Achi-Kochi
Mail|Direct Email |Andrew's SuperCool Blastoise|MailerGear|Advanced Mass
Sender|SpireMail|UltimDBMail|Mabry)\b/	REJECT No mass mailers allowed.
You are probably sending spam


came accross this, when i saw that an old bug was closed, and according
to bugs.d.o i was notified, but never got an email..
so, looked into mail.log and found out why.

it wasn't like that before, see following examples :

newest blocked message with entity x-mailer :
https://bugs.devuan.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=306;msg=19

older message received normally, without x-mailer header :
https://bugs.devuan.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=240;msg=9

thanks,
d.

I suppose this happened when we migrated the bugs.d.o server and upgraded
to debbugs 2.6.0.

I will look to see if it is possible to hide the X-Mailer header.

Presumably you could whitelist bugs.d.o?
