Thu May 8 01:11:37 PDT 1997 — Important: As the next step in our attempt to stamp out SPAM and UCA mail, I’ve implemented filters which restrict our dialup users from using off site SMTP (mail) relays. As all dialup customers should be using ‘mail.sonic.net’ as their SMTP relay, this should not affect you, however if your email client software is misconfigured to use someone else’s mail relay, you’ll need to change your settings. The goal is to avoid making Sonic an attractive place to SPAM from – by requiring users to use our relay, we can avoid remote relay abuse. If you have any questions about this, please do post to news:sonic.help and let us know.
