I noticed this in my email server logs recently:
status=sent (250 OK BONHAM COOLED BY FIRE …)
I searched, and the only reference I could find anywhere else on the internet was in this anonymous bpaste:
Aug 23 03:57:56 emailer1 postfix/smtp: 64B5774FA4: to=, relay=mxi3p.craigslist.org[18.104.22.168]:25, delay=12, delays=1.1/0.01/9.5/1, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 OK BONHAM COOLED BY FIRE (95194B88-D96B-4473-89DB-7222F04B088B.1))
My log entry is also from the Craigslist remailer. Is this just a funny, jokey custom status code that only Craigslist uses?
Does anyone know what it means? Is it a reference to John Bonham of Led Zeppelin?
250 means that the message was accepted for delivery. The human-readable portion of it can say anything, and it appears that this is someone’s attempt at humor.
