      Email forwarding from Bigfoot

      I've used Bigfoot's email forwarding facility for years, but in the last week it has stopped forwarding any mail. I've tried sending from my Sky account but just get an auto message as below :-

      I've Googled for info and its not clear if its Bigfoot who are blocking Gmail, or whether its GMail ( Sky ) who are blocking . Anyone know the definitive answer here ? I've emailed Bigfoot, but no reply yet. If its Sky, who do you contact ? Sky or GMail ?


      Thanks
      Andrew

      Re: Email forwarding from Bigfoot

      It isn't Sky that are blocking them because I am seeing a load of these as well from a non sky related account. I would like to know what is going on though as the ones I am getting are coming back with a 554 error message in that there is a problem with a smtp server.

      This is what I am getting:

      554 could not connect and send the mail to mail-kr4.bigfoot.com
      And if you do a search on it you will find other threads from other forums who are having similar issue with Bigfoot addresses:

      http://beta.bt.com/bta/forums/thread...art=0&tstart=0
      http://discuss.pscs.co.uk/fusionbb/s...php?tid/14826/

      There isn't much we can do until Bigfoot or whoever fix this problem.
