MAAWG

I head off to MAAWG on Sunday where I will catch up with the people I have not seen since last October. One of the very nice things about email delivery right now is the industry is small enough to know almost everyone involved. While MAAWG is only one of a number of conferences, it is one of the few where senders and receivers both attend.

I expect that I will come back from the conference with a head stuffed full of ideas and projects and lots of good information. I am also part of a team doing sender training sessions, specifically I helping out on the talk about how to screen customers. I will be sharing some of my thoughts on vetting customers here over the next few weeks.

If you are going to be at MAAWG, do stop by and say hi!

  • HE.net DNS problems

    Hurricane Electric had a significant outage of their authoritative DNS servers this morning, causing them to return valid responses with no results for all(?) queries. This will have caused delivery problems for any mail going to domains using HE.net DNS - which will include some of their colocation customers, as well as users of their free services - but also will have caused reverse DNS to fail for most servers hosted by Hurricane Electric worldwide, so if any of your mail is being sent from HE hosted machines you may have seen problems. (We're HE customers so we noticed. Still happy with them as a vendor.)No Comments


  • 65.0.0.0/8 DNS issues

    If you're sending email from any address beginning with a 65 - in 65.0.0.0/8 - it's possible you'll see some delivery problems. Something appears to be broken with dnssec signatures for the reverse DNS zone, leading queries for reverse DNS to fail for anyone using a dnssec aware DNS resolver (which is almost everyone).1 Comment


  • Our green bar certificate is going away

    Later today we'll be switching from an Extended Validation ("green bar") SSL certificate to a Domain Validation certificate. This isn't exactly a planned change but I'm waiting for responses from Comodo before I go into it too much. I'll share some more details next week.3 Comments
