Thanks

It’s thanksgiving here in the US and most of us are off eating way to much food with family and friends. But that doesn’t mean I can’t take a few minutes to give thanks.

I am thankful for reasonably effective spam filters.

I am thankful for ESPs and ISPs who actually take action on complaints.

I am thankful for the unsung folks who keep email useful.

I am thankful for my readers who tell me they enjoy, even if they don’t agree with, my blog posts.

For all my US readers, enjoy your holiday. For all my non-US readers, check back Monday for more posts.

  • AOL problems

    Lots of people are reporting ongoing (RTR:GE) messages from AOL today.  This indicates the AOL mail servers are having problems and can't accept mail. This has nothing to do with spam, filtering or malicious email. This is simply their servers aren't functioning as well as they should be and so AOL can't accept all the mail thrown at them. These types of blocks resolve themselves. No Comments


  • Fixing discussion lists to work with new Yahoo policy

    Al has some really good advice on how to fix discussion lists to work with the new Yahoo policy. One thing I would add is the suggestion to actually check dmarc records before assuming policy. This will not only mean you're not having to rewrite things that don't need to be rewritten, but it will also mean you won't be caught flat footed if (when?) other free mail providers start publishing p=reject.No Comments


  • Sendgrid's open letter to Gmail

    Paul Kincaid-Smith wrote an open letter to Gmail about their experiences with the Gmail FBL and how the data from Gmail helped Sendgrid find problem customers. I know a lot of folks are frustrated with Gmail not returning more than statistics, but there is a place for this type of feedback within a comprehensive compliance desk.No Comments
