Re: Postini Email Security Trial

The from address is as filled in on the form - when it failed I had given one of my domain addresses. I tried using my gmail address and it worked fine.
Do you need me to raise a ticket or are you following it up anyway?

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

So it's only when you use one of your domains as the from address? does it do it for all of them? Can you PM me the URL of the form?

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

Done
If you use zbob as the prefix to either of my domain names or my normal account as the email address the acknowledgements will arrive in my default mailbox - I'll leave any of them I find alone so you know if it's worked. I'll forward results from the form to the same address.
If you need to discuss anything I'm at home.

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

Hmmm, not sure I understand the problem (or I can't replicate it).
I filled out the form using your domain as the email addy and validation was returned that the submission had been successful.

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

Strange - I've just tried it again and it worked. Might it be that the problem is only on one of the servers (may be it had been slower picking up the DNS changes - or the caching DNS it used was still behind)?
It had failed on me twice before I posted.

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

For info only
Just sent 2 test emails from my Hotmail account
1 to username.force9.co.uk. This came in via Postini. (eventually)
2nd sent to my domain. This came in via criticalpath01. (quicker as expected)

Edit: Also had no junk mail in since about 12:30 this afternoon  Cool

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

Yes I haev noticed this with a couple of test e-mails.
An e-mail going via criticalpath boxes arrives almost immediatley.
Going via Postini takes a couple of minutes longer.

Bob
Is this the kind of delay that we should be expecting from now on when everything goes via Postini?
Looking at my headers currently, it shows that if they are going by Postini they are not going through the critical path servers. 
Shoud in the end they end up going by both by default or will it be either or or both maybe?
Thanks
Andy

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

I've just noticed that emails from these forums are not going via Postini - is this deliberate?

Earlier today I saw emails going from Postini to criticalpath - recent ones I've just checked have gone straight to mx.core.

Mine are now but they weren't earlier today.

The DNS servers they are using probably haven't picked up the change.

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

I expect DNS weirdness for at least a day or two.
Also worth bearing in mind what I said about the delivery routes here .
Remember as well that emails going through the mx.last platform (fhw-sunmxcorexx) do not go via critical path.

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

What are Postini supposed to be doing with emails containing viruses?

Re: Postini Email Security Trial

Quote from: Bob
I have a domain that hasn't used Plusnet's mail exchangers for well over half a year and spammers still send email destined for my domain to our mx.last and mx.core servers.

An extremely interesting observation.
(I'm presuming the spammer has kept either the IP or the mx name to save botnets having to do one or two DNS lookups)
Are you going to move the addresses and/or names of your mx's to anticipate the SPAM bypassing an external mail filter?
Is 'mx agility'  worth investigating as a SPAM defence mechanism? Maybe it doesn't account for much of the volume?
