Like lots of folks I have received emails from DH saying that I can no longer forward email addresses to AOL and now Comcast. This is a real pain! The suggested solution of creating a new email address to replace the forwarding removes the entire reason for the forwards: so folks can get emails to their regular email account and not have to deal with a separate email account!
I have read the emails and seen the posts about all that DH is trying to do to get AOL and Comcast not to block forwarded emails but this seems to miss the point. Why is DH being blocked in the first place? What is the source of DH being labeled as a source of spam?
It doesn’t make sense to me that the forwarding capability in an of itself is the culprit. It must be that DH is not monitoring well enough if some of their accounts are being used for spam, or else someone is abusing the forwarding feature for spam.
So, instead of DH telling us about what they’re doing about forwarding being blocked, I’d like to hear more about what they are doing to prevent their servers from being used as a launch pad for spam!
Please, please try to get a handle on this or I may be driven to find another host! I need to be able to use forwarding responsibly.
