DavidT Posted October 17, 2006 Share Posted October 17, 2006 I've been noticing odd delays in receiving email on my SC account today. I've tested this by sending mail to my SC address from other accounts, and when the messages finally arrive, they're sometimes over an HOUR late! I'm trying some direct connections to port 25 on both "mx.spamcop.net" and "mx2.spamcop.net" from a Linux-based web server in a major datacenter and the connections aren't being answered. Another test that failed is the tools at DNSReport.com: http://dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=spamcop.net where I'm seeing red flagged errors like this: ERROR: I could not complete a connection to any of your mailservers! mx2.spamcop.net: Timed out [Last data sent: [Did not connect]] mx.spamcop.net: Timed out [Last data sent: [Did not connect]] I'm pretty sure there are problems today with SpamCops email server. I was hoping that Wazoo would be online so that he could "page JT" but that doesn't seem to be the case. on edit: I've been "refreshing" the test at DNSReport and it was able to connect to both, but then I did it again and got this: ERROR: I could not complete a connection to one or more of your mailservers: mx2.spamcop.net: Timed out [Last data sent: [Did not connect]] so it's on and off. I still can't connect at all fron the web server....seems as if it's more likely to accept connections from some sources but not from others, or maybe it's random...
