    Register.com seems to be the problem

    Okay, let's try this again. (btw, Verisgn support never replied) I heard from another person with the identical problem and what he found out is this: What happens is that a company "Global Name Registry" (GNR) is authorized by ICANN to do the forwarding.  So when we register our addresses with register.com, they tell GNR the forwarding address. GNR administers the five servers mx01.nic.name, mx02.nic.name, ..., mx05.nic.name that do this forwarding. When one of these servers starts kicking out a lot of spam, Spamcop puts it onto the blacklist and we lose email for 14 hours. My solution was to get a mailbox at register.com, which does not use Spamcop. So now I have no spam filtering by my mail provider, but at least I get my mail......

    Register.com seems to be the problem

    Well yes, has timed off, so my mail is coming through again today and the other four MX's did continue to send me mail. However, after 3 instances of being shut down down, this has gotten real old and tired. It looks to me as if Verisgn.com and Register.com are different sides of the same company? Register.com has a customer service that is only qualified to handle very simple problems. Any idea how I might find someone with enough clout to impliment significant change? --Dave--
  3. My incoming email has been "disappearing" or just getting bounced back to senders. If I understand correctly, the owner of (mx01.nic.name) is the culpret. This server is the "mail exchange server" at Register.com which forwards my mail to my local ISP (who utilizes Spamcop). Since this server forwards email for multi-thousands of web addresses, it is not surprising that a bunch of spam goes through it. Can Register.com really do anything about it or am I just out of luck? I've contacted them several times, without success. ---Dave--- ======================================= -------- Original Message -------- Subject: There has been a problem delivering your email.
