Internet Email problem being fixed 2005-04-14 16:39:39

Some of you may have noticed that you can't send email to certain recipients - specifically, certain domains. This is because a LOT of mail servers have recently adopted a new email security policy that requires a few validation checks. The problem is that we've been a little slow to adopt the configurations required to pass these validation checks, and thus email from our server has been rejected by some hosts.

The good news is that I just got off the phone with our ISP and we should have the problem resolved tonight! I'll post a comment here when I've confirmed that it's fixed.

Well we almost had it fixed, and then our ISP's DNS server reverted back to an older config for some reason. I'm still working with them to get this junk fixed proper.
