The STUPID idiots have done it again.
Not even a warning email!
Looks like we have to use this open relay SMTP server...
But if there's an open relay SMTP proxy server... what the [email protected]$&*)(&[email protected]$&[email protected]$()& is the point of blocking the SMTP port 25 in the first [email protected]*$()[email protected]*& place!
The stupid point about this is A lot of email servers out there blocks any emails that is relayed from an open relay server... so setting it to this proxy server will just mean our emails will be F(@)*#ING blocked!
I wasn't affected?
You sure? It should already be in effect. Try sending a mail out.
Yeah, you may get incoming emails for POP3 ports are not blocked. But try sending any mail out without using the SMTP Proxy and you'd not get it through.
Oh wait. maybe you're on an IP core switch that's not yet updated to block port 25 and SMTP packets.... Sheesh. reconnect and most likely it'll be in effect for you.
Hmm.. Mine's not affected yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's in place by morning.
This smells of censorship and Big Brother activity.
Sending this e-mail out to the relevant parties.
Sigh.... luckily switching over to another port works. Just tested Port 587 instead. Phew.. looks like my initial assumption that they also block SMTP packets is not true, thankfully.
panic mode -> ON!
For me, it's PISSED MODE ON!
Sending this e-mail to the newspapers :
Over here for access to mail servers, we simply use the ISP's SMTP server (like smtp.comcast.net / smtp.central.cox.net) to send emails (outbound). For the other one its the normal POP3 or IMAP (mmm IMAP).
That's because you are using your ISP's mail servers.
Yeah, outbound emails go thru their servers. To prevent spam I think.
seriously, i think it's a retarded way of reducing spam. it's not like there's less spam anyway. sheesh.
Well as long as my outgoing emails get to where I sent them, I could really care less.
We can't do the same cause we are using our own e-mail server.
