Bounce Management: manual chapter feedback and discussion

Feedback on the following chapter: https://www.phplist.org/manual/ch040_bounce-management.xhtml

After a few subsections all of the explanatory text is in bold.

thanks, reported https://mantis.phplist.org/view.php?id=17706

Hi, maybe I’m wrong but reading this chapter I think that there is a mistake here:

(account is disabled|This mailbox has been blocked due to inactivity|This account has been disabled|The email account that you tried to reach does not exist|This is a permanent error * local delivery failed)

Note that the * is a wildcard token that means there can be up to zero characters between “This is a permanent error “ and “ local delivery failed”.

I think that ‘This is a permanent error * local delivery failed’ should be ‘This is a permanent error .* local delivery failed’

Please let me know if I’m wrong.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds plausible, well spotted; thanks for sharing. You can edit the manual directly yourself – see https://www.phplist.org/bookstack. This will shortly replace the existing pages on https://www.phplist.org/manual/. You can create an account and edit any page :sunglasses:

Hi, no problem.
I edited the page adding .* where necessary.
Hope that helps!

I was looking at this chapter because I needed to check the settings in the config file and found that instead of hashes (#) the commenting out uses two slashes (//) This is just confusing especially when you are searching for hashes. I don’t know whether this is the case throughout the manual.

@StilmanDavis Good point, thanks! The characters were probably changed to reflect PHP coding standards. Yes the manual pages can be updated. You can edit the pages yourself by registering on bookstack.

Something for your next iteration of the manual.
