llvm-dev not idenitifying me?

I've made a few posts to the list recently and the author is listed like
this:

   variable vector lengths

Does anyone know why that happens? e-mails I send everywhere else have
the correct author information.

I am subscribed to the list.

You'll notice I have the same problem, as does everyone else in my company
who is posting from their corporate email.
For us it started in late January, and we are prodding our internal IT to
figure it out. They don't view it as particularly high priority though.
And honestly I can't really blame them; the mail does go through, it's just
not identified quite the way we'd like.

I suppose it could be a configuration thing on the llvm.org end, I was
assuming it was on the sending side for historical reasons.

It is supposedly necessary to deal with the anti-spam brain damanage of
Google Mail.

This is mostly a guess, but as far as I can tell the list's sender
munging tries to parse 'from' addresses for the Name part in "Name
<name@domain>" style email addresses. I suspect that configuring your
email client to include a name rather than just the email address will
help.

Interesting. Here's a go at it.

Works! :slight_smile:

It's because of the Mailman "Munge" option to cope with DMARC (which is
really a Yahoo thing, but other services appear to use it too):

E.g. very much braindead indeed, but for list admins it is probably the
way of least resistance.
