Re: My message about notify looping issues and possible solutions
FWIW, I tried something else entirely, namely using RFC 4865 to handle looping.
Use HOLDFOR=120 if you've sent a notification in the same general
direction in the recent past, and mail loops become annoyances rather
than disasters. With a round-trip time of 2-4 minutes, it's difficult
to pile up more than a three- or four-digit number of messages before
the loop is discovered and fixed. A whole weekend is just 1000-2000
