Wondering if any of you have experience with this.
I have two domains, wiggly.org (A) and alertferret.com (B).
A has been registered since 1994.
B was registered very recently, within 6 months.
I run email for both of these domains on the same server,
otter.wiggly.org using Exim.
I have the exact same MX and SPF records for both domains;
@ 3600 IN MX 10 mail.wiggly.org.
@ 3600 IN SPF "v=spf1 mx -all"
@ 3600 IN TXT "v=spf1 mx -all"
Sending email from domain A to gmail/hotmail appears in the main inbox.
Sending email from domain B end up in the spam folder for both.
Now, I am wondering why this would be seeing as there has been
practically no email from domain B and therefore I find it unlikely that
the domain itself has been flagged.
All I can see is that domain A is a lot older but I have only recently
added SPF and have never really had problems with my emails from domain
A being consumed by spam folders.
Checking a couple of blacklist checkers I cannot find my domain or my MX
on any of them.
Does anyone have an idea as to why domain B would be getting caught in
spam traps whilst A does not?
I have had someone suggest using mandrill or other external hosted
solution but quite frankly if the mail is being blocked because it is
being sent from domain B then that surely wouldn't give me any improvement?
Any help, ideas, thoughts or further resources would be greatly appreciated.
From 1st September we are increasing the inclusive data transfer
allowance of the base VPS from 300GB per month to 400GB per month.
Those of you who were paying for extra data transfer above 300GB
per month may wish to check if you want to reduce your commitment.
If so you should contact support(a)bitfolk.com before your next

Just "testing the waters" at this juncture, making sure that our plan isn't
going to make Andy angry or anything like that.
I have two VPS's with bitfolk; my personal one and one that I am donating
to the virtual airline I am currently president of (on separate servers).
I'm thinking that for the purposes of backup of the VA VPS, I can rsync the
web folder over to a holding area on my personal VPS on a daily basis, and
do more traditional "everything" backups (again, rsync) less frequently.
Is this feasible/considered an "OK" thing to do (Andy)? Would I be better
off raising a support ticket to have the backups done by Bitfolk (assumes
you're not already, o'course)?
I am new at customizing Exim and I am using an ESP to get my customers'
emails to be received in the Inbox of Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo. At the moment I
do this by manually routing the domains (manualroute router of Exim for
domains gmail.com, yahoo.com, hotmail.com, ymail.com, etc.)
There is a problem with this configuration. If one day one of these free
email providers offer new domains or in Google's case people use Google
Apps for their domain or Windows Live Domains, there is no way I can list
down all the domains for the Exim manualroute router. These emails would
then be delivered through the normal remote_delivery and I cannot take
advantage of my ESP services. I did my research on this and found out that
I need a dnslookup router with mx_domains directive (rather than
manualroute) to be able to make decision based on the MX of the recipients'
Now I came to a problem where I cannot use mx_domains inside manualroute,
nor use route_list inside dnslookup. How do I get around this problem? Is
there a clever trick to be able to achieve what I need? I was thinking the
solution shall remain to be a manualroute router with additional condition
to do a lookup on the recipients' domains MX records. Can a perl script be
implemented to achieve this?
I tried using ignore_target_hosts in manualroute, but unfortunately that
didn't work because the target_hosts would then be my ESP's server rather
than the recipient domain's MX.
Thanks in advance!
Is anyone planning on attending FrOScon in Cologne next weekend (24th /
I'll be there, offering my presentation to the LISP track.
If anyone else is going then I'd be pleased to meet for beers or at the
BBQ in the evening.
On one server, Fail2ban has banned over 150 IP addresses so far today
for attempting to hack into WordPress sites. (If you run WordPress and
you don't have protection against this, you need it!) The volume is such
that it managed to crash the MySQL server on one VPS today.
One suggestion I have seen is to use Apache's authorisation to limit
access to wp-login.php, but that a) involves telling a bunch of real
people a password and some of them could forget their own name and b)
increases the size of the apache process by about 20% over the slimmed
down version with as few modules enabled as possible that I have been
Anyone have any other suggestions?
Totally OT for the list, and I'd be more than happy taking this off list at
the first opportunity.
Do any of you lovely folk have a Google Nexus 4 running stock Jelly Bean
I changed over to a modified NFC stack (the detect NFC tag removal one) but
like a fool I forgot to keep a copy of NfcNci.odex, and I need both the
.apk and .odex to OTA to 4.3.
It's in /system/app and you'll need Root Explorer (or similar) to copy it
out to send it on.
