• disroot, anyone?

    From Ogg@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Thursday, May 19, 2022 08:22:00
    A new one I just heard about.. https://disroot.org

    The project is based in Amsterdam, was founded by Muppeth and
    Antilopa in 2015, it is maintained by volunteers and relies on
    the support of its community.

    Mailbox size limit: 1 GB
    Attachement size limit: 64 MB

    One particular feature..

    Delimiters: You can use delimiters (plus sign, "+") in your
    email address to create sub-addresses, like
    username+whatever@disroot.org, for example for filtering and
    tracking spam. Example: david@disroot.org can set up mail
    addresses like 'david+bank@disroot.org' that he could give to
    his bank. It can be used only to receive emails, not to send
    ones. Your emails will always be sent as david@disroot.org.

    You can do the same thing in gmail.

    i would rather user periods because many providers reject the plus sign in email addresses.

    well, can you add the period? i'm sure a lot of web forms would reject the plus symbol and octothrope.


    i used to use the plus sign with gmail and it would get rejected frequently. ---

    No, period is already synonymous with white-space, which is ignored in the "user" portion of Synchronet mail addresses. So yeah, you can be mr.o@yourbbs, but you can't also be mro.bank@yourbbs unless you set up a specific alias. But mro#bank@yourbbs needs not pre-setup.

    Dunno about your synchbbs support, but there is also the
    everpopular comment in the local part of the an email address:

    mro(the grumpy guy)@somewhere.com

    That can be handy sometimes.

    It COULD be precluded by the restrictions of the mailer you are
    using. Works fine in MS Outlook and my TB.

    I will send test messages to the addresses you show in your
    screenshot.

    i just wish we could use periods because that would be the best way.
    i am running my own server with synchronet so i can just do aliases.

    The (comment) trick works TO my gmail account, but NOT going
    out. Gmail is half-baked in that regard. My main email
    provider is Globat and/or Netfirms. But they support the
    (comment) on the outbound and inbound too.

    I have not found much use for the delimeter trick. By the time
    the inbound processor strips them out, everything is in one
    mailbox anyway.

    A little more digging has solved the mystery. It turns out
    that gmail will accept it when you link up to the service using
    pop/smtp or imap. The web interface to gmail does not accept
    the (comment) trick.

    okay i found the gmail one.
    your method wont be accepted for what i use the delimiters for, though.
    i usually use it on webforms so i can later block spammers.

    Right. (Comment) only seems to benefit the sender as a kind of
    quick note. The recipient won't necessary see it unless they
    look for it in the headers. But a Claws user told me that they
    see the full name(the comment here)@somewhere.com in the
    reader.
