Subject: USEPRO 2.3: Supported email addresses
Charles proposed the following new text:
There are two circumstances when news-server administrators may need
to be contacted by email:
1. (injecting agents only)
For sending complaints concerning the behavior of the poster of an
article, the correct address is
o If there is an Injection-Info header field with a "mail-
complaints-to" <parameter>, then the address in that
o "abuse <at> " followed by the <path-identity> in that Injection-Info
field; or, in the absence of any Injection-Info field, the
<path-identity> inserted by that agent in the Path header field
(which, for an injecting agent, should be the one followed by
the keyword "POSTED"). Evidently, that <path-identity> needs to
be an FQDN for this to work.
Injecting agent administrators SHOULD[2,3] ensure that a working
email address is obtained by this process.
2. (all agents)
For reporting technical problems concerning the operation of a
news-server, the correct address is either "news <at> " or "usenet <at> "
followed by a <path-identity> obtained from an Injection-Info or
