That would be great - If people could stop sending spam That'd be great

no but in all seriousness, we're aware of this, it is with our systems team, something will surface on the website to reflect this, the downside is that most places require 48 hours of spamming to stop before we'll be removed. More updates as we have them from our systems team

Just part of running an ISP SMTP server, even with the best filtering appliances available you're still somewhat at the mercy of spammers / your own users.

You can run all fancy scripts limiting the numbers of messages sent per minute / hour but if enough gets through a blacklist awaits, in this case still sorbs.

If your business depends on email, use your own mail server or use gmail to host your domain email, less likely to get caught in the crossfire
