#14136 assigned bug

Trac verification email

Reported by: irtusb Owned by: kallisti5
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Website/Trac Version:
Keywords: verification Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


Through the years it has been a common thing to see new users reports on IRC about not getting the verification email when registering to Trac.

I blame some spam filters who can just delete the message before going to inbox.

In order to check what reasons may have a spam filter to do this I ran a simple mail sending test using an online tool and got the following report:

In summary report notices:

  • Missing Message-Id: header
  • Your message is not signed with DKIM
  • You do not have a DMARC record
  • There is no html version of your message
  • Your message does not contain a List-Unsubscribe header

We now score 8.4/10. Here's what it says:

 Your message is not signed with DKIM
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a method for associating a domain name to an email message, thereby allowing a person, role, or organization to claim some responsibility for the message.
You do not have a DMARC record
A DMARC policy allows a sender to indicate that their emails are protected by SPF and/or DKIM, and give instruction if neither of those authentication methods passes. Please be sure you have a DKIM and SPF set before using DMARC.

You do not have a DMARC record, please add a TXT record to your domain with the following value:

v=DMARC1; p=none

Verification details:; dmarc=none
    From Domain:
    DKIM Domain:
