So 31.12.2008 will be 86401 seconds long instead of 86400 seconds.
Registration deadline:31.12.2008 23:59:59

Filtering locally simply means stopping end users to access illegal sites.
Ok, but the sites are still there and everybody else will still have access !
Yes, but i'm sure that the 'local' netclean box can log IPs of people who

Now we found out that bluewin doesn't allow authenticated smtp-relay
from users outside their ip-range, so all our customers with
bluewin-mailadresses would have no smtp-server available.
That's not entirely correct:
smtpauth.bluewin.ch will relay mails from non-bluewin-ip-ranges
Thank you for clearing this up. So we have to give bluewin-users with
free bluewin mail-accounts an smtp-account on our servers I think.
Well, they could call our helpdesk and ask them to disable the
'Restricted IP-Range' feature for a specific mailaccount.
Our helpdesk will disable it

No problem via Bluewin-DSL:

We are aware that ns.bwlbmsg1zhh.bluewin.ch. doesn't play well with IPv6

It's a little expensive if you have many SMS'es - does anyone know who

Is there someone left who uses them to reject mails on smtp level?
Yes, we are still using Spamhaus.org on our MX servers, but we are using the
rsync feed and we are able to whitelist IPs within a few seconds.

Have other seen this behaviour of exchange servers
Yes. One of our MX servers somehow managed to loose the connection to
the ldap server (didn't dare to re-establish it) and only returned

Seems to me that the benefit of cutting down on Spam would be worth the
trouble of using port 587...
Blocking port 25 is just a quick-n-dirty 'fix'.
What will happen when virus-writers are going to spam using 587 (The
credentials are stored on the users PC anyway..)?
What would people do to
would they not then block official port 587 as well as port 25?
That was the position I heard the 'customer service rep' take the last

And why not using the existing authentication protocol on outgoing smtp
server ? So the sender can use the smtp server of the provider of its
email address from any network and SPF can work without any problem.
How would this solve the forwarding problem?
