crazy_vag Posted December 13, 2005 Share Posted December 13, 2005 As Cornell alumni, I am able to keep my Alma Mater's ([at]cornell.edu) email address. After graduation however, you need to forward the address to another ISP, and so I chose to forward it my ISP ([at]paxio.net). Last week, I started hearing reports of email bouncing because cornell's server was blacklisted. I contacted Cornell, and got the following reply: -------------- SpamCop recently decided that it was going to start listing the IP address of mail servers that relay mail on its list of IPs that are potentially sending spam. CU On the Net, our mail forwarding service, is a mail relay service. We are not going to stop relaying mail, because that would mean alumni would not have the mail forwarding service available to them. SpamCop is refusing to stop listing us for relaying mail. This means that any ISP that uses SpamCop to check for potential spam is most likely going to end up blocking a person's CU On the Net forwarded mail. -------------- What the heck? Why is SpamCop allowed to effectively nuke my email address. The whole point of forwarding is so I can switch ISP's and still keep the same email address, but SpamCop feels that everyone should either switch email addresses when they move or move to a web-mail based system. Are any other forwarding services blacklisted, or is Cornell's the only one? -martin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
