relaying not permitted … namecheap.com

Thank you for contacting Namecheap support!

We have disabled sending any emails with the field 'FROM; containing email address on the domain that does not exist on the server.

We have taken these measures due to mass SPAM sending through forums, guestbooks, contact forms scripts on our servers.

Mail relaying is also prohibited.

You need to change your script's settings. In order for your scripts to work as intended, you need to set the 'FROM' field to an email

address that you have created under your account. So please be advised to use email address crated in cPanel -> email accounts to send mails FROM.

Please contact us for any additional inquiries.

 

My Question was:

A member of my E-Card Program (I have 11 members) can't send today a card to his friends

and I had in my inbox with you for this the messages 'relaying not permitted'.

I tested it and it is so, from:  xyz@ymail.com   I get the message

'relaying not permitted'

and from:   ecard@irmgardhartmann.com ... my program can send.

What means all my ECard programs can't send a card with a ... From: ....@..
which you don't know? This isn't true?

Maybe that is the reason and explains perhaps in the last month really less have sent out a card and I had this messages in my inbox with you. What have I to do that my E-Card program is send out?

 

 

 

Arvixe.com … 24 month of experience

I was from 2010 to 2012 at Arvixe.com.

I took the personal-class and a dedicated IP with Arvixe.com for two years, this was a failure and I lost a lot of time and subscribers.

I red a lot reviews, before I mad my decision, not bad for the company and I thought now I'm right. It has changed in this two years and the only site, which are always yet positive reviews are Web Hosting Jury, all other reviews include the same problems as I have had.

Before I mad the contract with Arvixe.com, I cleared up with the sales department, all important scripts of my site and the functions, especially the email functions, the members I have and the volume I am sending out. The sales department of Arvixe.com agreed and I took the plan and the dedicated IP.

I have not let that agreement confirmed in writing, that was a mistake by me. Arvixe has an other plan that would cover the work which they wanted to sell me two years.

Arvixe.com wasn't capable or didn't want to handle php-scripts with mail functions. Arvixe.com didn't allow me to send a webmail, something new for me and against the contract. Arvixe.com are needed massive words of mine, that they allowed an opt-in on my site through my own responder script, with confirmation mail and sending of the free e-book link. All my subscribers are need to confirm their subscription and my site don't work without this.

The support was to become insane. I am never saw in this last ten years a department work in this manner. There isn't a communication between the support people, who passed my service ticket off to one another and nothing was resolved.

 

Here a review I found of one of the ReviewHost sites. I agree!

Terrible hosting company. Terrible customer support. Terrible communication between the "techs" who simply pass your service ticket off to one another AND contradict each other in the process.

One of their shared servers completely failed, taking a clients site down. For three days. Of course, Arvand claims the server did not fail. After numerous requests and ignored service tickets, they finally attempted to migrate to a new server and reinstall from backup.

However Arvixe could not seem to get the correct php and ASP.Net versions which the site was written under, installed properly, claiming that there was no significant difference between php 4.2 and php 5.3 Really? Now my clients site has been down for a full week. Then they blame my back-up source. OK... so my back-up source is "bad"...fine...how about we restore from your backup, Arvixe? What's that you say? Your say the database backups got corrupted during the "bluebell" server failure (that you told me seven days prior did not happen?)

After ten full days of being jerked around with every half-assed excuse, I pulled the plug on Arvixe. Too bad on the rating system here there isn't negative integers.

Pros: Leaving Arvixe.
Cons: Yeah, they're con men alright.

 

 

 

 

 

The first ticket opened 24 October 2010 was not finished 23 November 2010, perhaps I gave up.

I have a Follow up Autoresponder PRO and this script didn't send.

Involved was

Hello,

I have checked mail logs. On 25th, three emails were sent to @ymail.com from your autoresponder with the subjects:

"Irmgard Hartmann sent you an ecard from E-Cards Irmgard Hartmann"
"Irmgard has picked up your card"
"Danke f374r das Versenden einer Postkarte!"

One email was sent on 26th with the subject:

"Irmgard Hartmann has picked up your card"

These emails were sent to @ymail.com completely. The log shows that the mails were delivered.

Hello,

This has already been conveyed that we do not allow mass/bulk mailing from our shared servers. You are broadcasting to 806 members that is considered as Bulk mailing. Unfortunately we will not allow it on shared servers and if it will continue, we will have to suspend the account. If you need to broadcast to hundreds of members, signup for MarketingClass.

I subscribed as I seen that two subscribers don't have get the confirmation mail and you really don't sending.

That means you block my business, what means I lose money, fine.

Dear Ray,

When you refund the rest of the time, there is no question, I change to an other host, without refund a stick with you.

I read you aup and tos, before I made the contract with you, this 806 members, are double opt-in and internet marketers.

And this also per you, the second and third and also the last one, if you mean, you give your company a chance in this manner, you maybe on the wrong way. I sent, as I said my newsletter now since six years, those are in the last two years all double opt-in subscribers, before there wasn't that in this form, as I also talked with your sales department.

If you first catch the customer with a cheap plan, I told the sales person of my newsletter, and than block the script for to bring this customer to an up-great, that is the perfect art to make business.

You can repeat as often as you want that bulk/spam mails is clearly outlined, I don't feel you talk to me, perhaps it isn't what I send.

This isn't a joke, when I than take this other plan, it is no question?

OK, today are the company awake.

God father, the support of a host decides what to do and what a sales department sold isn't important any more?

However in the moment is for me important that my site is open and the opt-ins on my site receive their confirmation mails.

This was the end for the ticket for my Follow up Autoresponder PRO script, they it have blocked till the end of contract.

We let you send out, but not in hundreds or thousands at once. No host will let you send large amounts in short periods like that, as these are website hosting packages and not bulk emailing packages. What is the specific issue your facing?

The issues is nothing, I stay with you till the end of the contract, important is for me the site run.

Maybe, unfortunately, you didn't understand what I bring in with my domain, but when I read the chat protocol of this conversation, this person has understand what I have written and it was OK with the amount of sending per hour and also with my newsletter.

After I have paid and installed my files, I tested the Autoresponder with my business contacts from the giveaways, double opt-in, all persons are internet marketers. You didn't sent.

So I had to write, the rest you can read in the support tickets, unbelievable the answers. And you, unfortunately, has an other plan in your program and the six weeks are over.

I stay and take what I have and make it public, in my business list are enough marketers, which are sites, blogs and dedicated servers, that those are careful with you and the best is without written confirmation they do nothing with you.

As I started with you, I informed you, that I have a list and send a newsletter, there was no problem also the amount of my list members. I send as my subscribers are subscribed and all 15 days. There isn't a sending more than 400/h, all that was spoken and written before the contract was paid and there was no problem.

“Unfortunately, if you want to send bulk emails, you will need to do this with a MarketingClass plan, as doing this from a shared hosting account is against out TOS / AUP agreements. “

I make my plans for me, perhaps I am a business man, who make unfortunately this plans in your firm? Lets face it, you want sending also when it is in the frame of your policy 1000/h.

There isn't a sending more than 400/h, all that was spoken and written before the contract was paid and there was no problem.

I have bought a dedicated IP? You don't know?

Hello,

If you would like, we can setup a dedicated IP address for you to send emails from.
This would prevent anybody else on the server, from getting your IP blocked.

Unfortunately, if you want to send bulk emails, you will need to do this with a MarketingClass plan, as
doing this from a shared hosting account is against out TOS / AUP agreements.

More information on that plan here: https://www.arvixe.com/email_marketing_hosting.php

I will be happy to pro-rate anything you have already paid, towards that MarketingClass plan.
MarketingClass plans come with a dedicated IP address by default.

Please let us know how you would like to proceed.

Take a minute and think about the situation of your customer, his needs for a small business and what he to for this to keep running.

I don't think you understand this, perhaps you want to sell your other plan.

But I want this other plan, perhaps this is to large for my small business, the only thing what is big is my list, which I have build in now seven years.

If you can't run this, give me my money back and I will find an other host.

Sincere? I also don't believe that you are capable to do this work.

I changed the settings with e@irmgardhartmann and guess, the only mail what came was again to the @ymail.com and always the same the message of an account @verizon that it is temporary disabled, but I didn't send to this email address.

That's show, that you don't sent from my server POP3/IMAP and SMTP, that has nothing to do with development, this is simple the blockage from you of my sending.

As I said, important for the moment is, the site run. The time goes over and than I hope I find a host for my domains, where the customer the customer and the support the support.

More important is for me also, that what is spoken and agreed before I in. is after of value.

Hello,

The settings you are using are wrong for SMTP Authentication:
@irmgardhartmann.com and franca1950 do not work at:
http://irmgardhartmann.com/webmail

Please update your password from the control panel to the password you are using.

Sir, we are not your developers and while I understand your frustration I can assure you SMTP authentication works. You can use webmail or Thunderbird or Outlook to verify this. You need to:
1) Create an email account with a password from your control panel
2) Use the email address as teh username
3) User the password as the password

>>So if you don't want run the scripts I have installed, you mean you are in law with our contract?
No, we do not advertise making sure your scripts have the right settings or modifying the code. We can provide information to help you, and we have stated many times that you need to use SMTP authentication to send out of the dedicated IP. mail() will send out of the server's shared IP instead.

I just had a long talk with a programmer from ..., he is the same opinion as I, you want run the mail-php which sending from my mail addresses on my server, the same also said the programmer of the autoresponder program. The result is equal null, also with this confirmation of 'test', what you want to do with that is also this two a miracle.

The only mail you send is the confirmation mail for my subscribers on the site, what means that my autoresponder is OK, also you send the ecards of my visiters, what means my eCardmax program is OK.

So if you don't want run the scripts I have installed, you mean you are in law with our contract?

By the way, before I changed to you, I tested the Ecard program on my other domain and it was sending without problem? Only, I don't need two licenses, with a link it is done.

Hello,

You can confirm that the server sends out of your IP by using webmail:
http://irmgardhartmann.com/webmail
username: test@irmgardhartmann.com
password: test

Then you will see the header is using the right IP. Webmail is a PHP script like yours, it shows that your PHP script is not using SMTP authentication. You need to use SMTP authentication to take advantage of the dedicated IP.

I loaded down from the php forum an example, written for an member, which has the same configuration as I, the file is identical with my mail.php and pear.php.

Hello,

I've checked the settings again. They are correct.

If you are going to send emails out from a script (like your e-card program), you need to use SMTP Authentication. You can't use PHP's mail() function as the emails will not leave from your IP address. This method only works for transmissions that are done through SMTP Authentication.

Thank you for your patience,

Hi again, I wrote also on the qa@.

Do you know what I think? You have a problem, you want to sell your other plan and take all actions for this, but this against our contract. You have to run the scripts which are installed on a domain.

This information me give yahoo:

….

So, I tested to sending with SMTP with my E-Card program - guess - nothing came to my test- mail - boxes. So I send again with sendmail and now I have in one box something but not in the second, third and fourth. You see in your email log what I am sending, so I understand, why I have only in one box the test, you know this mail address.

I think that isn't a problem or?

I don't know what you not understand, I have only one domain with you with dedicated IP, but I am not surprised about the answer. It is normal for a host which want to do for what a customer had paid as run the scripts which installed on my server.

Dear Supoort,

I don't know why I purchases a dedicated ID, when my server don't run with this. I don't think that you capable enough to handle a domain with php-scripts, each of my programs has a possibility to sending, now I have my own programs, perhaps Coppermine has no right click protection, but also there my visiters have sent and also in this time each program had his own email on my server.
My server has an own ID, this means my emails ---all--- have my dedicated IP, I paid for this .

So can you please for all emails on my server give my dedicated IP and that just like the begin of our contract.

This message came as I send a testmail.

I have 11 members and I send every Year one time a greeting for the holidays.

I searched this mail and site?
I tried to enter to sorbs, firefox me say it is a site without SSL.

Than you take for my mail your shared IP and not my dedicated IP, why?

 

 

 

1 MIO US LEADS

There was a company which offered 1 MIO US LEADS after you have read 20 days/mails of them, I have seen this by Listjoe.

For my list I have needed six years and it was 2.8% of that amount. So I subscribed and was curious what comes. I would be never possible for me to sending out to this masses, I work with my own Autoresponder on my server and have string limit of sending per hour, I was interested to see the result, this was a great number.

And so started the story:

Hi Allan,

Allan,
first:             this aren't US leads
second:         I tested seven addresses right now and six are returned
third:            How old is this list?
four:             the first-name isn't?
five:              I can't use it with a return rate?

So as offered from you, I wait always of the 1Mio US leads.
Irmgard

Irmgard Hartmann

to Allan (show details Oct 3)

OK, Allan, I tested now over hundred of this addresses and all, also the one this first not came back, are back in my box and can't delivered.

What to you think about it, I can take the list and publish with the deliverer, maybe someone remember when he signed up and for what, but I don't think so, but it is long time ago.

Tell me, which marketer take this from you and signed up for this Autoresponder, without to cancel or continue there, after the deliver of this addresses.

I'm sure that's a joke. Would you be so kind to send this 1 MIO US leads as written in your mail.

Irmgard

allan karlsen

Remember you got these leads for FREE!

Irmgard Hartmann

Thanks for this old-timer list of leads, I'll see what brings the test, think 99% isn't more,
Irmgard


PS: By the way, I'm happy that I never came of the idea to invest with ….., also
when …. was written, think the results are equal to this lists, you sent me.

allan karlsen

to me (show details Oct 17)

The leads at http://saxohotleads.com are updatet/uploaded every week
and month and are ALL 100% good!

These are full data opt-in leads and you WILL get visitors to your
website using these leads!

Allan

And this is the result, what you get are the bounced mails from http://saxohotleads.com.

Naturally it is for Allan easy to offer this leads for what others need years. It is wasted time to take the leads and to test it, your reputation is gone, your responder account suspended and you without connection to your own list.

I tested it from my computer with outlook and gmail and all (100) UK and US came back, what I have thought as I started this adventure, it wasn't normal to offer this amount of leads.

Servage.net, 29 Monate Erfahrung…

Ich hatte meine Seite vom 24.April 2008 bis Mitte September 2010 bei Servage.net. Ich habe Servage damals gewählt, weil ich mit Überweisung bezahlen konnte.

Im Rückblick kann ich nur sagen, Finger weg von dieser Hosting Gesellschaft.

Wenn sie auf die Seite gehen, werden sie etwas sehen, dass wie ein gutes Angebot aussieht. Ich habe mir das genau angesehen und es deckte meine Ansprüche.

Was ich brauchte war das Mail und Mysql.

Was ist nun nach 29 Monaten zu diesem Angebot zu schreiben?

Hier ein kurze Zusammenfassung:

Servage wird mit Ausdauer gehackt, was bedeutet die Dateien auf meinem Server waren nicht sicher. Die Databases Mysql hatten tagelange Aussetzer. Das Mail funktioniert oft nicht und ist so unsicher, dass andere Kunden von Servage auf meiner Root mitverschickt hatten.

Die einzige Database die ich auf meinem neuen Host eingefügt hatte, war von meinem Autoresponder und hier waren Hacker aktiv. Als ich die Dateien prüfte und reparierte, hat das Programm eine Informationsbrücke gestaltet, die mit dem löschen der Daten wieder verschwunden ist.

Die Dateien aus der Database von meinem Blog waren überhaupt nicht mehr zu verwenden und haben von selbst endlos 'ßßßßß...' geschrieben und den Rahmen von der Postpage bei WordPress nicht mehr genommen.

Meine Bilder hatten zeitweise eine andere IP als mein Server, der User sucht, mit der gleichen IP, im Moment das Folder in welchem ich meine Bilder hatte.

Und hier ist der nächste Punkt. Servage hat kein Cpanel und auch keine Stats oder Protokolle wie z.B. Hostgator, Dreamhost, Bluehost, Hostmonster usw. Es ist bei einem Fehler nicht nachzuvollziehen woher und wann es passiert ist. Die Möglichkeiten sind stark verringert und der Support absolut unfähig in dieser Richtung Auskunft zu geben.

Als ich so ziemlich zum Anfang feststellte, dass meine Bilder alle eine andere IP als mein hatten, kam als Antwort: 'Es ist möglich'. Nach meiner Anfrage waren meine Bilder wieder mit meiner IP-Adresse, wenn ich mit der Mouse darüber gefahren bin.

Ich habe kleine Programme in PHP, geschrieben von Programmierern und teilweise geprüft und getestet von Html.it. Sie erfüllen den Zweck für die ich sie brauche und funktionieren und damals am Anfang noch Coppermine, alle haben die Möglichkeit die Bilder als Karten zu verschicken.

Als es mehr wurde mit den Mails, ging das Mail nicht mehr, von allen auch von dem gekauften, geprüften und sicheren Ecardmax Programm. Ich suchte nicht bei Servage sondern schrieb alle Programmierer an. Die Antwort kam und sie haben getestet, die Programme waren in Ordnung. Also schrieb ich wieder ein Ticket.

Die nächste Aktion war, dass ich nicht mehr zu meinem Webmail-Horde Zutritt hatte, dies war über kurze Zeit für mich gesperrt.

Ich kann nicht aufzählen wie oft die Databases in den 29 Monaten nicht gingen, manchmal für Stunden, der längste Zeitraum war 3 Tage. Die meist besucht Seiten von mir sind mit Mysql und PHP.

Um mir das Leben einfacher zu machen, legte ich mir einen Autoresponder zu mit Follow-up für das Newsletter was ich alle 15 Tage verschicke, aber jetzt waren bei Servage die Reserven erreicht.

Mit den Follow-up kamen sie nicht klar. Die Broadcast-Mitteilungen gingen gerade noch aber in einem Tempo, dass ich sie auch weiterhin über meinen G-mailer versenden hätte können.

Was also bei Servage nicht geht, man kann keine bounced@email-adresse einrichten und hat keinen POP/SMTP Server = mail.domain.com. Die Erstellung eines Cronjobs ist eine Fleißarbeit, für jede Stunde einen Cronjob, was heißt ich habe 24 Cronjobs für meinen Autoresponder erstellt.

Ergebnis: Ich habe meine Follow-up Newsletter wieder gelöscht und als Broadcast verschickt.

Ich habe mir den Feedbackloop von Comcast geholt und zwei, drei Monate später nach der Installation meines Scripts hatte ich eine Menge Meldungen von Comcast, die nicht von meiner Adresse verschickt waren, also bounced mails. Ich hatte als Root in meiner Mailbox gute 200 mails zum Löschen und so ging das lustig weiter.

Ich habe ein Ticket deswegen geschickt und die Antwort des Support war: 'That are the bad scripts of our other users'. Aber das beste kommt noch, ein Empfänger, AOL , hat sich beschwert und meine Mailings sind gesperrt worden. War aber niemand von meiner Liste, auch das zweite mal nicht, auch das dritte mal nicht aber das vierte mal, da war es ein Mitglied aus meiner Liste, drei Jahre war sie dabei und so ihre eigenen Worte, sie war nicht mehr interessiert, als ich ihr erklärte was mein Host nun macht, vielleicht ist sie auch mit den Mails von den Hackern bedacht worden.

Nachdem ich anhand der Feedbackloops und den bounced Mails beweisen konnte, dass bei Servage etwas schief läuft, haben sie meine Seite nicht vom Server genommen. Aber sie haben keine Mails mehr geschickt, sowohl von Ecardmax, Sendcard als auch von meinem Autoresponder. Alle drei Programme stellen die Adressen als zu verschicken ein mit der Karte oder E-Buch für das sie sich eingeschrieben haben.

Raten sie mal wie automated meine Seite gelaufen ist für den Rest der neun Monate?

Ich habe meine Adressen zu meiner anderen Seite verlagert und bei Servage gelöscht bevor sie weiter von den Hackern mit emails beliefert werden die nicht von mir waren.

In diesem Ticket habe ich den Support von Servage als 'poor' bezeichnet, hätte ich vielleicht besser nicht gemacht, danach ist folgendes passiert und es ist ein seltsames Zusammentreffen der Ereignisse, zudem keiner vom Support widersprochen hat:

Mein Autoresponder Script wurde gehackt und hatte einen corrupted index.php, mein Blog ist eine nightmare, mein Contact Script hat sich nicht mehr geladen und das Forum hatte eigene redirect codes. Alle php files hatten eigene entry codes in php. Dieser Code setzt alle gesetzten Begrenzungen außer kraft, ich habe in mal in ein Support Ticket an Servage kopiert, die Form war hin.

Ich habe ein bisschen Erfahrung mit der Materie und restaurierte nach und nach die Scripts.

Ich habe in der Zeit mit Servage soviel Zeit mit suchen nach Fehlern vertan, in Foren der Erbauer nach Informationen gesucht und wenn ich nichts gefunden habe geschrieben, die kann mir kein Mensch bezahlen. Endergebnis war immer und ohne Ausnahme, dass wenn man dem Support schreibt, dass die Erbauer dieses Script nichts gefunden haben was ja auch stimmte, einmal habe ich die Antwort von dem deutschen Coppermine Programmierer in das Ticket kopiert, gingen die Programme, das heißt Email Funktionen wieder.

Ich bin bis zum Schluss nicht dahinter gekommen, wie dieser Support seine Aufgabe versteht oder mit welchen Anweisungen sie arbeiten. Eine Antwort in Kurzfassung:

Hallo Frau Hartmann,

ich versuche nochmal, die Situation zu erklären:

Ihr Konto wurde von Hackern missbraucht, um Spam-Mails zu verschicken. Das ist jetzt leider schon mehrere Male passiert. ….......

Also nochmal in aller Deutlichkeit:
Es handelt sich bei der Bestellung NICHT um irgendetwas, das Sie bei uns bestellt haben, sondern um eine Bearbeitungsgebühr, weil Sie unseren Service Fahrlässig genutzt haben.

Natürlich können Sie auch wählen, den Betrag nicht zu zahlen, wobei wir dann das Konto schließen werden müssen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Manuel, Support
Servage Hosting

Natürlich hätte ich mein Mail auch wieder aufmachen lassen können, wenn ich die von Servage selbst erstellte Bestellung über Euro 25 bezahlt hätte, auf dass die Hacker fleißig weiter arbeiten können.

Es spricht für Servage, obwohl ich diesen Betrag nicht gezahlt habe, dass sie mein Konto nicht geschlossen haben.
