In the category ‘completely clueless’ Verizon has decided to blacklist half the planet. Or the whole planet, maybe – it would not surprise me given the reports on Broadbandreports, Nanog, Slashdot, and even our local Boston
Linux and User Group.
They did something similar about 18 months ago where they blacklisted all non-US mailservers. That’s when I stopped caring about Verizon, frankly. Don’t ever trust them with your e-mail would be my advice. If you have to use them for DSL, use a non-Verizon e-mail account if you value receiving e-mails reliably. Gmail, yahoo, your own server, a different ISP, whatever. Just avoid Verizon’s e-mail ‘service’.
