Customer Notice Unsolicited Mails

Telemedia hereby advises customers that the Company continues to address the significant increase in spamming that has occurred recently.

It was determined that the majority of unsolicited mails were sent from the cope.edu.bz domain. Therefore, in an effort to resolve the issue we have blocked this domain, which has effectively stopped the direct sending of email from this domain to our customers.

However, we continue to be affected by SPAMMERS using the google mail servers. Our customers are still receiving responses from the googlemail of "Mail Delivery Subsystem – Delivery Status notification (Delay)" as the Spammers use our customers' btl.net address as the return address.

We are now attempting to have the domain cope.edu.bz blacklisted as we have not received any responses from the administrators of the googlemail domain. If this also fails, then we will need to take the drastic action of blocking all mails coming from googlemail. Meanwhile, however, Customers can configure their outlook or which ever mail reader they are using to send mails coming from googlemail.com to their junk folder. Additionally, we ask customers who receive these spam mails to forward them to abuse@btl.net, as this will assist us in addressing the problem.

Customers are advised that the company will continue to take all necessary action to resolve this issue. Telemedia apologizes for any inconvenience caused.

I hope they're aware that many people here use gmail quite legitimately.

Well, my email, which is actually google apps, not gmail, and is on my own domain is apparently being blocked. Not nice.


Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

The really worrying part is that (some) gmails just vanish into the ether. No message is sent that the mail has been bounced or otherwise failed. I've had this intermittently on mail sent by and to me over the past month or so.
