 Re: Chello is blocking FreshPorts email

My conclusion: Chello has a misconfigured mail server which is using xbl.selwerd.cx to block incoming smtp connection.

I have been told that Chello is using xbl.selwerd.cx. My research shows that one should not use xbl.selwerd.cx to outright block incoming stmp requests, which is what Chello are doing.

This URL explains why Chello are using selwerd.cx incorrectly

This says selwerd.cx has ceased functioning:

And that is supported by what you see at http://xbl.selwerd.cx/.

I hope Chello change their configuration.
