I am currently working at a Chinese University and am having problems sending mail messages through Kontact (and outlook express previously). I recieve the following error message (or variant)
Message sending failed since the following recipients were rejected by the server: XXXXXXXXXX@hotmail.com (The server responded: "RBL rejection: the local postmaster has forbidden access -> http://admin.bl.kundenserver.de/")
The message will stay in the 'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem (e.g. a broken address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder.
The following transport protocol was used: Laowai
Do you want me to continue sending the remaining messages?
Further investigation showed the Uni network/ip address is on the SPEWS list (arghhh!!!!!!) as are all the surrounding ip addresses.
I dont want to be punished for the slackness of China Telecom and the beer swilling, cigarette smoking system admins here who smile sweetly, offer me a fag and say �so sorry�.....
Is there a way to send mail through a proxy server to avoid this problem?
Using webmail is a pain and I did pay for my E-mail address too!
Hope in advance
