Description Dennis German 2009-02-02 17:40:39 UTC
I believe that there are several cases where the documentation
includes incorrect anchor tags of the form:

  mailto:add@ress.com

For example:
whitelist_from add@ress.com
unwhitelist_from add@ress.com
whitelist_from_rcvd addr@lists.sourceforge.net sourceforge.net

def_whitelist_from_rcvd addr@lists.sourceforge.net sourceforge.net
whitelist_allows_relays add@ress.com
unwhitelist_from_rcvd add@ress.com..


Perhaps a global change simular to:

 s/<a href=mailto:add@ress.com">add@ress.com<\/a>/address.com/

and 
  s/<a href=mailto:add@lists.sourceforge.net">add@lists.sourceforge.net<\/a>/lists.sourceforge.net/

would corect most of them.

Thank you.

I'm sure whoever owns ress.com does not appreciate those examples. Isn't best practice to use example.com when using an example domain?

yes.

The original reporter however is talking about something else -- the pod2html output appears to have linkified those addresses. is that right?

I suppose there are actually 2 problems here.

1) http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/spamassassin/site/full/3.2.x/doc/Mail_SpamAssassin_Conf.html

is ugly!

2) perhaps pod2html needs a correction.
If you think pod2html needs a correction please bug it as I am not qualified to do so.

Err, yeah, well -- what about looking at the actual docs then, rather than a raw SVN dump? Does that look ok to you?

Anyway, Dennis, you didn't answer the question. What is it you are actually about in this bug report? The fact that the email addresses are links at all, and should rather be plain text instead?
Comment 5 Dennis German 2009-02-03 07:55:09 UTC
These should be plain text
