Thanks for fixing this redirect! As Wiki Loves Monuments publicly starts on Sept 1, a quick fix would be much appreciated.

PS: We also tried to mail “” that should also be forwarded to the wlm-de OTRS queue but this one also failed.

Those are old servers (T113211: Replace primary mail relays (polonium/lead)) - lead.wm.o is now actually the gerrit machine (think the name was reused). Should point to mx1001.wm.o and mx2001.wm.o instead.

This needs correcting by the administrator of the domain, not OTRS admins. That appears to be WMDE

Thanks, I forwarded it to my colleagues at WMDE. We'll send out test mails and let you know.
