Have you tried contacting them?

 

GZ isn't an official support channel for them.

Maybe not, but someone might see it.  I've no wish to try telling anything to the Mumbai help desk.

I'm getting email bouncing on orcon too, and like @ADKM I dread the thought of sitting through a support call to wherever it is.

There's more than just phone contact details available from that contact page.

If their email's broken & they don't have a fax machine (because who does) then ... ?

Then use the online contact form that doesn't require email, fax, or phone.

Hi ADKM

 

I'm not working on this myself however we are working on it, we were aware of this as soon as it happened and working on a solution.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks @Nebbie. I also logged a call for the issue myself.

 

BTW why is there no mention of this under 'network status' ? There's a problem affecting your customers, why not let them know?

 

If I saw there was a widespread issue I wouldn't have added another 'me too' to the CR workload.

I recently saw btinternet bouncing email sent via Vodafone because Vodafone didn't (or still don't, haven't checked) have an SFP record.

 

bt are the muppets here.

That's not it, they're almost impossible to understand (or be understood by) and they tell you bull****.

I too am frustrated about Orcon’s blacklisting on multiple SPAM lists. I have been in touch with the Help Desk on more than one occasion. They simply do not believe it is their problem. I have provided evidence that their IP addresses can be found on multiple blacklists, to no avail. I now have some friends overseas that I can only email using a Gmail account.

 

 

A typical email rejection response I get is:

 

“<<< 554 Your access to this mail system has been rejected due to the sending MTA's poor reputation. If you believe that this failure is in error, please contact the intended recipient via alternate means.”

 

 

Or :

 

“Reporting-MTA: dns; mail.orcon.net.nz

 

Received-From-MTA: DNS; default-rdns.vocus.co.nz

 

Arrival-Date: Mon, 3 Apr 2017 20:06:15 +1200

 

 

Final-Recipient: RFC822; xxxxx@icon.co.za

 

Action: failed

 

Status: 5.1.1

 

Remote-MTA: DNS; securemail-mx3.synaq.com

 

Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 550-rejected because 219.88.242.59 is in a black list at dnsbl-1.uceprotect.net

 

Last-Attempt-Date: Mon, 3 Apr 2017 20:06:26 +1200”

 

 

 

219.88.242.59 is blacklisted at five sites. It is an Orcon address.

 

 

The most frustrating thing is Orcon’s refusal to acknowledge the problem. It is getting worse and I am looking around to get a better ISP to host my private email URL.

Well hopefully it's not that frustrating at all for you, because @Nebbie has quite clearly acknowledged the issue above.

If you ever ran an ISP's mail platform of any significant size you would become aware that its a constant whack a mole of clearing blacklists, and blocking compromised customers while allowing your customers to send mail however they please. This is one of the reasons why ISP's hate supplying email nowdays and would be much happier if customers used specialist email providers.
