Another Outtage Today - Explanation

Post by Diablo0 » Tue Apr 17, 2007 6:38 pm

Some may have saw the site went down today around 2-3pm or so. The problem stems from the host believing that I'm spamming hotmail accounts so they suspended my account for 2GN.org. I contacted them, talked to them, explained that I don't send out spam messages and the only thing being sent in mass quantities are board notifications like Thread notifications, PM notifications, ect. Apparently, according to them, a member of the forum and I don't know who, is submitting these e-mails that they agreed to receiving when they joined to Hotmail as Spam and in turn they are contacting the host. They understand my situation but they are unable to do anything for legal issues.

I'm working to find a new way to send e-mails out or the forum to try and elevate the problem but for now e-mail notifications and such will not work until I am able to fix this. I've also blocked hotmail e-mail address due to this problem.

I'm very sorry about all this but in reality it's out of my control since I don't have anything to do with it. I am however looking for a work around. If anyone has any suggestions like an open SMTP relay server or anything, please let me know!

Hopefully it doesn't take very long to find a workaround :-?

Until I can get this fully resolved I have disabled most if not all e-mails being sent out to prevent the website from being suspended again.

Once again I am VERY sorry about all of this but I am doing my best to get this resolved as fast as possible.
