13.05.2006 - GMX Email Service blocks morphos-team.net IP Address

As of May 9th 2006, German email service provider GMX has blocked all mails coming from morphos-team.net. Furthermore, it does not accept outgoing mails to morphos-team.net either because it wrongly categorizes the morphos-team.net IP address to be in a dialup IP range. GMX blocks any communication with hosts in such ranges by default.

Feel free to visit http://www.gmx.net/serverrules/ for details.

Please note that affected users have no way to change this behaviour by modifying the anti-spam settings of their GMX account.

The GMX customer service (support@gmx-gmbh.de) was contacted but failed to understand the problem and could not provide assistance in the matter. As it is unclear at this point whether GMX will be able or willing to solve the problem, we hereby suggest all MorphOS users with an affected email address to resubscribe to the support mailinglists with a non-GMX address. In order to do this, please fill out the form found at http://support.morphos-team.net/.

Also, please take note that the PowerUP registration process is hindered by this as well, so do not try to register using a GMX address.
