spam on maailinglist which i don't own anymore

Post by eagle00789 » Tue May 26, 2009 4:02 pm

i am constantly receiving spam on a mailing list i used to own on joomlacode.org for the project Joomfish XML Files. This project doesn't exists anymore, but i still receive many spam mails on the mailing list i used to run with that project. can the mailinglist for that project be killed by someone so that i stop receiving spam from it?

If you login to Joomlacode, click on 'My stuff' --> Monitoring and later Monitoring forums, can you find it there?

Was this your own project or was it a mailing that was part of the joomfish project?

Mmmm, the only project you are now linked to is abbrev. Also can't seem to find that other project. Was it removed? Was this a project that got moved over from the old Forge?

the project was indeed available on the green looking forge, but not on the new blue looking forge. this also means that i can't login to mailman anymore to delete the mailinglist...

Mailing list subscriptions are stored in mailman independent of the JoomlaCode project's settings. This is for obvious reasons where people may not be a part of the project but should participate on its lists.

If you go here: http://joomlacode.org/mailman/admin/jf_ ... es-updates

And sign in with the list administrator password you would have been sent you can alter the settings of the list to remove yourself as owner. Additionally, we could grant you access to your project again so that you can delete the mailing list.

You should have access to the project again. If the project is really obsolete you can request to have it deleted.

That's true. However, if you're into affiliate marketing than spam a is niche goldmine!
