      Problems sending to hotmail & tiscali??

      Hi,

      I have a SkyUser Mail/SMTP account, and use it to send emails from our free serve account.

      BTW my router is a Sky supplied Router, and not the Netgear stated in my profile. I'try and change the one in the profile.

      All was fine until yesterday since when emails to hotmail and tiscali accounts have been bounced back. Emails to yahoo accounts are fine.

      I'm pretty sure it's something to do with the SkyUser end of things is that sending from the free serve/orange webmail site works fine.

      Has something changed in the pasty few days That might have made emails to hotmail and tiscali accounts look like spam, or something.

      Any ideas and help welcomed

      Many Thanks

      Richard

      It looks like someone is possibly using our SMTP server for spam reasons, therefore we have found ourselves on spam blocking lists etc

      We are on the case.

      Might be a good idea to look into setting up a linux server for stateful packet inspection.
