Well, I think that the entire spam wars situation is getting gross.
The Spam was bad enough and I HATE it, but now ISPs are starting use
measures which cause collateral damage, while I seem to be able to
filter spam better than they do. Pointing out that they are failing to
deliver legitimate e-mails to me falls on deaf ears. They like the fact
that blocking e-mails without examining them, only the ip address of the
server they are coming from reduces the load on their servers.
Anyway, I can see how doing this in Evo might be difficult. I was
thinking that perhaps a field could be added to a contact entry which
selected your email account based on who you were sending to.
Or perhaps through a new? rule like a filter or vfolder.
By the way, it was attempting to sign up for this very list which drove
me to setting up a mail account outside of my isps filtering. I tried
for two days to sign up, and never got the confirmation message. Then
it dawned on me that my isp might be blocking the ximian mail server, so
I set up the alternate account, signed up with that one and got the
confirmation message almost instantly. I don't know what RBL this list
is on, I checked Spamcop which is the one I've had problems with my ISP
bouncing message from yahoo groups, but your server wasn't there. I
guess my ISP is using multiples, and you're on another one.

this? or do they not handle it either?

It would be nice if there were a way to make the account selection work
with mailing lists too.
I've lately run into some problems because my isp uses one or more
realtime black hole lists to block incoming e-mails.
