[Mailman-Users] Off topic, how to get in verizon.net's good graces?

Oh, and Steve, I have been using mxtoolbox for some time.  Great tool.
They think our mail server is the man, as in "You da man!".

I got a verizon.net account to use to test against, and could send outbound
emails from it to my gmail account fine.  But, verizon.net even rejected
emails from my gmail account, not through any relay!  I also whitelisted
the relay domain inside the web interface for the verizon.net test account
to see if I could get one email through to inspect.  No dice!

Verizon must have its shields set to ludicrous.

I think I have had enough and will email the subscribers using still
attempting to use verizon.net to find a provider who cares tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Arlen Raasch
