Re: Issues with Microsoft Mail services

Also applies to anyone using their own domain name hosted at Microsoft or Office365. Basically If you want to communicate reliably with anyone, do not use Microsoft to host your mail. I’ve had email from Microsoft hosted services take up to a week to get through. I have no idea how much email never makes it.

Issues with Microsoft Mail services

David Cameron - IRLP
 

Just wanted everyone to know about a problem I am having with Mircosoft Mail services that will not have a resolution.

First, they blocked IRLP's outgoing email because my server is hosted at DigitalOcean. DigitalOcean is a Virtual Private Server provider that provides IPs and servers to the masses (similar to IPXCore, etc).

It is not uncommon for servers on DigitalOcean to be used to send spam emails, as anyone can spin up a server, use it for a few hours to send hoards of spam, and then run away.

So Microsoft tagged EVERY IP from Digital Ocean as a spammer. So to get around this, I use a relay server from another system I maintain outside of DigitalOcean. This server has no reputation as a spammer, and worked fine.

But Microsoft decided that since the email originates from DigitalOcean and is relayed outside, that I am trying to get around their spam policies. I am not moving my server for this.

So I have given up. If your email is from hotmail.com, outlook.com, live.com (or .ca variants), you will not receive any email from IRLP - ever.

I put that stream on its own windows laptop and turned the volume all
the way up. The audio is there but VERY low. Its still a bit low at
full volume. And of course they don't talk very often.

By the way.... Have you taken a tour of the Space Station lately.
This one is very good. I recognize lots of the equipment.

Are you taking the media feed from NASA TV? That's what I'm feeding our local repeater with. Yes some commentary but only when there's nothing else going on.

A bit of an experiment, but IRLP is going to attempt to provide a stream of the Demo-2 launch audio, now set for Saturday May 30.  Tune in to Reflector 9601 beginning at 1100 eastern (1500 UTC). The launch is scheduled to happen at 1522 eastern (1922 UTC).  We expect to keep the stream up until the dragon docks with the ISS some 15 hours later.  Weather forecast sounds a little questionable, if the mission is scrubbed, the next attempt will be the following day, Sunday.

A few cautions before connecting.

1. Reflector 9601 is configured for listen only, no matter how strong you are.

2. Since this launch is hosted by SpaceX (not NASA), it is possible the stream may include content not normally considered appropriate for your repeater.  It is possible it might include a advertisement or music.  If you don�t like what you hear, it is your responsibility to disconnect. We will not be exercising any control over the traffic.

3. Extended transmissions are possible.  All IRLP Nodes have a non-configurable, built-in timeout of five minutes. If your repeater has a timeout shorter than five minutes, it may drop out prematurely. We think (hope) there will be breaks in less than 5 minute intervals. But no guarantee, so you may have to reconnect if your node times out.

4. Make sure you have the means to disconnect.  If your node is configured for duplex control allowing you to disconnect while your node is transmitting, you are good. Otherwise you may need SSH access or other means to manually disconnect.  This is particularly important for simplex nodes.
