Hospital radio station struggles with Yahoo! email 'blockade'

Fair Points


I have taken the comments listed here on board and have already taken action to implement the following.

1/ Amended SPF record so that only the primary mail server is authorised to send mail.

2/ Amended the reverse DNS infomation for mail server IP address to a non adsl one.

3/ Amended hostname of mail server so that it does not display adsl

4/ Made sure that that the A Name MX record, SMTP greeting / hostname and reverse DNS for IP all match.

Although the main website is hosted with hostgator.com they do not host our email, and to be honest their service as a host have been second to none, just a shame that their backbone provider has an allegedly obvious dubious record with regards to spam.

Many thanks for all your help and comments.
