Auto responder spamming issues and comments in gitlab-org group
A user who had a
Watch setting for the
gitlab-org group and had a email set with an auto-responder to say the person was no longer part of the company. Every e-mail notification from a project inside
gitlab-org would trigger the auto-responder and would successfully post comments with the auto-responder message.
watch setting stopped the emails.
What is the current bug behavior?
Auto-response emails were not rejected.
As Stan mentioned:
Ideally we should quarantine or stop these auto-responders because anyone could easily do this and overwhelm our issues.
We need to inspect the headers for these replies. Perhaps we need to update the headers that are marked as auto-generated emails.
