Mail Problems

You may have noticed some intermittent email access for the last few hours. This is due to a mail server at Demon Internet which is attempting to deliver the same message over and over again, tying up all of the server resources.

I have contacted both Demon and the originator of the email message (which is not spam) and neither of them have been helpful in resolving the issue as yet, Demon saying it's the customers problem - and the customer must log a problem with Demon - and their customer has not yet responded to my email, and I've been unable to track them down on the phone.

So, in the meantime, I've had to block all mail from Demon Internet, until such time as I can be sure the problem is cleared. This may be for up to 48 hours. Allowing all this mail from Demon will mean the server is likely to fall over, or other mail will failed to be delivered, and so this is the best course of action.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but unfortunately it's outside of my control. I will continue to try and resolve the issue with the other parties.
