After the most recent entreaty, Amazon SES removed my account from the sandbox and enabled E-mail access. I ran a test with mail-tester.com and it reported a non-spam score of 9.9/10, with many of the nits things only the mail transfer agent can control (for example, DKIM signing) and properties of the test mail I sent (high link to text ratio). Re-sent the registration E-mail to cruft.com and it was received successfully. Activated the regular user account: E-mail: REDACTED User name: johnwalker Full name: John Walker Password: REDACTED Changed the administration account to: Email: REDACTED Username: Fourmilab Full name: Shalmaneser Password: REDACTED Added biography to both accounts. Made a backup AMI: Scanalyst Backup 2021-10-04 ami-0b5b50f2f92e485bf / snap-01a1e8ca182d0d13a /server snap-0d15b164887f4953f Stopped the existing instance, i-082d04418d82bcfa1, and created a new instance to remedy errors in configuring the original one. The replacement instance is: AMI: Scanalyst Backup 2021-10-04 Instance ID: i-0756b0658cac51c9d Instance type: t3.medium Availability zone: eu-central-1b Instance details: Private IP address: 172.31.22.248 Network: (default) Subnet: subnet-6519951e All other: (default) Public IPv4 address: 220.127.116.11 Public IPv6 address: 2a05:d014:d43:3101:8b80:c858:f08:9bd0 Storage: Root /dev/xvda vol-075b7c5e09688d5e6 8 Gb No delete on termination EBS /dev/sdb vol-0dd32c02c3bbe7e18 128 Gb No delete on termination Tags: Name: Scanalyst Security group: sg-049b61db659446aab Scanalyst, launch-wizard-2 created 2021-10-02T21:11:21.242+02:00 Selected Launch. Reused the key pair Scanalyst.pem from the previous instance. Confirmed that we are now in the eu-central-1b availability zone and that IPv6 access works correctly. The Spoiler plug-in works. The MathJax plug-in, although enabled, doesn't appear to do anything. Looking at the error log, it's getting: TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'inlineBetween') at https://scanalyst.fourmilab.ch/assets/plugins/discourse-mathjax-be016dd42715440d1f20e184e9108ddea9071a54ab0a935a91be25cd41ff1577.js:1:50 Changed administrative contacts in the site configuration to: email@example.com Had to verify the firstname.lastname@example.org address through AWS SES before it could be used as a sender address. Tested with an E-mail to my REDACTED address and it worked. Private messages appear to work, as does E-mail notification of receipt of a private message when away from the site.
