Is there a way to override this? What can I do? I need to email outgoing messages!
I tried ports 80 and 465 (SSL) and still not working. I know it can't be antivirus (i dont have one on my computer :P). I'm baffled.
All that it takes is a person or two to complain in many cases.
I can bet that no one complained. Out of the 300 emails, probably half bounced back due to the email addresses not existing anymore. And the ones who received the mail probably were very glad to hear from me. They were all old members.
Ok I will contact them, but how do you guys get around it? I am sure alot of you send out mail to your members, or to link exchange partners. Do you have to pay for an email service that will allow you to send out as much mail as you want?
I gave up on sending mail directly to my (fully opt in) customer list last year, and instead do so with a third party service. It's an extra expense, but it has eliminated so many hassles. (Aside from the prospect of getting banned by your own ISP, there's the risk of getting banned by a major ISP without even knowing it -- this happened to me -- and then becoming unable to reach your existing customers!)
