Frequently Asked Questions
What is an open relay?
Why is an open relay bad?
A number of organisations are cracking down on spam originating from open relay servers by forming blacklists. Several anti-spam solutions check if the mailserver is in one of these blacklists before allowing incoming mail from it. If your mail server gets listed on one of these blacklists, a lot of the emails that you would be sending would not be reaching their destination.
