After a long hiatus I decided to come back and check out whtau.
I found I could not remember my password. No probs, I reset it.
I didn't receive my email, or the next one.
So I trawled through my email logs and sure enough whtau had sent the emails but my MTA(exim) had rejected them as spam.
Why? Well because whtau does not have a reverse DNS entry on their mail server.
This is a very basic mistake. Something all mail administrators should be aware of and rather surprising that whtau is set up incorrectly.
So I fired off an email to whtau explaining the problem and commenting on the fact a forum such as whtau should know better.
Some weeks later (yesterday) I decided then to disable that filter and reset my password.
This I did.
I then got a new password and logged in only to find all forums are marked as private and I cannot view them and any attempt to do anything like edit profile etc is marked as "permission denied".
So as you have noticed my user name is a temp one which I used so I could log in and ask the following questions...
- Do your mail administrators realise no reverse DNS will badly effect the delivery of email.
- Am I being blocked or barred for some reason.
- If so what did I do wrong?
My real user name is DeveloperChris.
Happy new year!
