There are no attachments in I-D Submission verification email messages from the online I-D Submission tool. The most recent one I got went like this:
<begin verification message>
From: IETF I-D Submission Tool
To: [email protected]
Subject: I-D Submitter Authentication for <draft-name>
Date: ,date.

Please follow the link below to complete your I-D submission.

https://datatracker.ietf.org/idst/auto_post.cgi?auth_key=<ugly-string>&submission_id=<number>

Please note that if you do not follow the link above by <date>, then this submission will be canceled and your Internet-Draft will be permanently removed from the staging area.
THIS PROCESS MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE ANY CUTOFF DATES. IF A CUTOFF
PERIOD BEGINS BEFORE YOU COMPLETE THE SUBMISSION PROCESS, YOUR
SUBMISSION CANNOT BE ACCEPTED.
The IETF Secretariat.
<end verification message>

ALL my IETF mailing lists come to email accounts that I control on my own mail server. but....
I recently submitted my first Internet Draft since my company was
bought by a BIG TELCO, and it has BIG email filtering rules. In
large part these rules were developed by my colleagues in the other
part of my company that was bought by the BIG TELCO.
But the short of it is that only a small selection of email
attachments are let through and otherwise the email is dropped
silently. Thus the email for validating an ID submission never got
to my corporate email account.
Have others seen this sort of challenge? What do others do? Our
corporate IT does not listen to researchers like me to produce
individual rules, it seems. As it is they killed an email address
based on my intials that I have been using for 10 years (with some
changes to the domain portion); got to be the full name...
Should the ID submission tool have the option of NOT including an
attachment, perhaps just a URL to a temp file with a 24-48 hr life?
Or is there a way already to customize this that I missed?
