I sent a email from xtra to a vodafone email address, as a TEST.

Xtra from ADSL

Email sent at 7.42 East monday night...

Viewing the vodafone account via the web management screen, I been watching for 15 min and it still has not arrived.

Go figure...

This is so bad...any ideas. And this is not the forst time I have seen this delay.


Update its now 20 min...

It happens. Sometimes the Xtra server is overloaded with e-mails causing extra activity for the spam and antivirus filter...

Your 100% correct.
 I sent an email with no body

So it ended up in the spam account....


Vodafone spam rules caught it...

Goodness! 3.5 points just for being from that domain, just the domain that (probably) 50% of New Zealand Internet Users have an account with?

Yes, the post is gone - I made a bad decision on writing about it without checking all the facts...

Most of the post is gone...

Sorry Mauricio, I should have made it more obvious that I was purposely misquoting Diggs for reasons of mirth!!

Ooops. This whole thing is out of control. My blog post was live for only 10 minutes, but this thread is alive.

I've got the word from Telecom that they are not amused: apparently a couple of people already called their help desk to ask about Vodafone blocking email from Xtra.

Hope you all had fun..

The point is that vodafone stuck my email in a spam account, without telling the sender that it was treated as spam.

I not sure what the best policy is, but it would have saved me some grief.

I now have my email address to vodafone on the approved list.

Maybe some one should post Xtra spam rules.

I iz your trusted friend
