Qgil added a comment to T287023: Sending two mass emails to eligible voters for the board elections 2021.

Maybe I wrote my no-reply ask too soon. After receiving a hundred automated replies or so, things stopped. That is a manageable amount of bounces to handle a couple of times every year or so. Cleaning the moderation queue was easy. Also, thanks to that From we have got a couple of genuine replies that were useful.

Qgil added a comment to T287023: Sending two mass emails to eligible voters for the board elections 2021.

The first mailing has "board-elections lists.wikimedia.org" as "from". The result is that now we are getting a big amount of auto-responses in the moderation queue of that mailing list. Given that we don't care (or we cannot do anything) about server autoresponders and out-of-office notices, can we use a "no-reply" type of From address, please?

Ok, after checking with my team, this list is good to get us going, and if this is all we can get, it's fine. However, if building the list based on the criteria defined above and the data set from March is not too complicated, we would still welcome it.
