BLOG

Long posts and little time to write them

It seems I’ve hit the wall on short and easy blog posts to write recently. There’s a lot I want to talk about like the recent changes at Spamhaus, filtering in the upcoming year and where I see the industry going, some thoughts on DKIM and how folks are using it. All of these things, though, will take some focused writhing time. And right now most of my focused writing time is spent on customer work.

I don’t even have time to read other blogs to comment on things folks are saying.

So blogging is likely to be light over the next few weeks, although I’m going to try very hard to get posts up 3 times a week.

  • 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
