i've not been getting any email from the site for years now. i've since changed webhosts in the last month and also tried completely new / different email addresses and nothing is working, so it must be an issue on this site. is it something which can be looked at?

do other people get email from the site, eg when you get pm's or thread replies etc?

Dunno

ash: problem posted lower down how to fix

Alerts are always sent out. I'm guessing that the receiving mail server is classing it as spam Sad

it's happening on more than one server though, also the Zen main servers (which are pretty big to say the least) classing them as spam can't be good! will have to speak to them

Have a look and see if there's any kind of whitelist you can add to your email which should override their spam settings.

If not then Ash - it might be worth adding an SPF record for the domain - you create a string (there are free tools to do it online) which you add as a record into the DNS zone file. It's essentially a list of IP addresses which emails from 306gti6.com might be sent from. It looks like the only server that sends mail is the one that hosts the site, so our SPF record would look like this:

v=spf1 ip4:80.82.125.196 -all

With that in place, email providers should check for an SPF record for the domain, which says "the only legit sender is 80.82.125.196 - they then check that is indeed where it came from (which will pass), so it should pretty much bypass all other spam checks.

Not all providers use SPF records but they should do, as they're pretty much the only reasonable way of checking for spam these days.

Can't do any harm, I've only ever seen significantly improved spam filtering as a result.

Hello,

here is the problem:

2012-07-13 22:29:49 H=(server.306gti6.com) [80.82.125.196] sender verify fail for <anonymous@server.306gti6.com>: The mail server could not deliver mail to anonymous@server.306gti6.com. The account or domain may not exist, they may be blacklisted, or missing the proper dns entries.

essentially the way we look at at it, any genuine mail is likely going to want a response, so if a mail is sent from a non existant email address then our server will refuse to accept it, since only spammer do not want you to reply to them.

since the domain, server.306gti6.com does not exist mail from that address will always fail. The admin need to set up the server to send from a correct email address and not make one up.

That's pretty conclusive, I did notice earlier that it was coming from server.306gti6.com but didn't realise companies were that strict on it.

So basically send from 306gti6.com NOT server.306gti6.com and add an SPF record, I reckon that's 99% of notification woes sorted.
