What Happens to Linux Users When ISPs Block DSL-Hosted Mail Servers?
Dave Aiello wrote, "A number of news sites (including Slashdot) have started reporting that various major ISPs are blocking mail that appears to originate from mail servers running on DSL subnets. I didn't think of this initially, but, what are you supposed to do if you have more than one Linux machine in your house and you forward the mail for the root user to a single email address for review?"
"At my place, I have two Linux machines running on a DHCP subnet that have .forward files in the root user directory. Now, these mails forward to a ctdata.com address, which is our own server and it's colo-ed. So, this isn't a big problem for me at the moment. But, other people who spend less money on their infrastructure than we do might be running into problems already."
