Why was my message rejected?

Blind carbon copies

Every message must be addressed to the mailing list. This means that the RFC 822 header must include securesoftware@list.cr.yp.to in a To field or a Cc field. Blind carbon copies are not accepted.

Bad subject lines

Every message must follow the specified subject-line format. Please read the information for contributors before sending a message to the mailing list.

You must capitalize Subject and Re: in the usual way. You must not capitalize [local], [exhaust], etc. You must have exactly one space after Subject, Re:, [local], etc. These rules are designed to help subscribers filter messages.

Microsoft's embrace-and-extend translations of Re, such as AW, are not acceptable.
