Re: Scheduled maintenance - Cogeco areas - June 19th @ 1am

yes I had the 10/1 business with them and went to the 20/1 residential with you but since I am only D2 it's 14/1

I was not aware they were port blocking TPIA users.

It was news to us too unfortunately. Alas, you're the only customer we have that is running an inbound mail server on a dynamic IP cable service so we hadn't run into it before. Generally speaking dynamic space is blocked for SMTP servers in either direction, however Cogeco shouldn't be the one doing it since it's our IP space. For what it's worth, from my experience, running a mail server on a dynamic IP service will have a pretty poor delivery rate as the rest of the internet tends to frown heavily on mail sourced from such space and usually marks it all as spam since it's normally from trojan'd home computers. Regardless, we're still pursuing getting any blocks removed. The long-term solution however is a static IP.

I've never run into big issues with bouncing mail anyone getting the emails I send have pretty much already whitelisted my domain.

So what do I need to do to get a static IP. *starts cooking BBQ ribs*

Mmm, ribs. Beef or pork?

As for static IP, does your router have L2TP capabilities?

I'm running DD-WRT and it does have a L2TP option.
