A situation where one automated mail triggers another which again triggers the first mail to reply etc. thus creating a mail loop.
A communication error between two email servers, usually happening when a misconfigured email triggers an automated response from the recipient server.
A mail loop is an automatic and ongoing repetition of emails between two mail servers, which may result in you or a mailing list receiving the same message repeatedly. They are usually caused by poorly configured mail systems, but should always be reported to the Mailtalk Helpline.
Occurs when email software is misconfigured, causing an error message (from a hard bounce) to mistakenly be sent to an entire subscriber list instead of just one error message being sent to the list owner. Mail loops are considered poor netiquette because they annoy subscribers and may cause readers to unsubscribe.
Een situatie waarbij een automatische mail een ander vraagt te reageren welke opnieuw vraagt de eerste mail te beantwoorden etc. en dus een ssort van mail loop creeert.
