  • Forum notifications via email

    It has just come to my notice that one email spam prevention service, Barracuda, has blacklisted our mail server.

    Sadly, this can happen through no fault of our own.

    There are dozens of these services and Barracuda is the ONLY one to have taken this action according to aggregated monitoring.

    There is a procedure for requesting blocks to be lifted and I have followed this.

    However, it may take a day for the block to be lifted.

    Not everyone will be affected - it depends whether or not the operator of your own mail service subscribes to the Barracuda service or not.

    If you have recently noticed that your routine email notifications have stopped, this is almost certainly why.

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    Hi Ian,

    That is used on my Essex Wildlife Trust e-mail servers, so I am used to having to authorise things from there. I've not noticed any other issues.

    Good luck with the upgrades

      So far I have only found two services blocking us - the vast majority don't, but Barracuda is one of the bigger players, unfortunately!

        I was unable to send an email to my daughter this morning but it works now, so I think the problem is successfully addressed although it may take longer for some mail servers to be 'fixed' than others.

          I don't think I have noticed any problems but I guess I'll know if any more comments are posted here & I either get or not get an email notification.

            You probably weren't affected in the first place
