Hmm…Gmail troubles explained…perhaps


Hmm…Ars Technica is reporting on a possible explanation for all the problems with Gmail messages going missing etc. Apparently an earlier hack which broke the company’s captcha system seems to have created a flood of spam originating from Gmail mail servers. The result is several ISPs are now blocking Gmail addresses, so the message goes AWOL. Great, eh? We’ll keep tabs on the situation, and hopefully someone inside Google will fix the thing sooner rather than later. Sheesh!

 Have you had problems receiving e-mail from Gmail users recently? If so, you’re one of thousands. Over the past month, major anti-spam vendors have had to apply scrutiny to Gmail in a way they haven’t had to before, and the result is reduced delivery performance and sometimes outright blocking of Gmail. Some messaging hosts are being instructed to reject SMTP connections from Google. Ars Technica has independently confirmed this.
