Hi, Judy, guess I'm not the only one with this problem. I know the ISP's have to protect themselves, but sometimes I think they could find another way. They told me they subscribe to 3-4 services that have LONG LISTS of sites/servers that are automatically blocked from getting to them, and I know there are numerous newsletters I want and can't get. I finally convinced them last november to unblock just rhss, but that was all they would do. Now I have to give them another IP address and hope they will unblock it also. WIsh me luck, I may need it.

I didn't realize that my ISP blocked anything...but they told me that I would be inundated if they didn't. I have now developed a relationship (email only!) with the person who blocks and unblocks and he seems fairly responsive now to help if I discover something that I want and am not getting...like RHSS. The problem is that I don't know what I'm not getting!

I realized I never get any mail from moviefone so I asked him to unblock that and he told me he has...don't know if that's working or not but it may explain why I've never won movie tickets through them! I finally started using a free e-mail for them a while ago.

Thats one thing I have worried about, how many win notices have I not received???? I only found out this was happening in NOvember when I didn't get rhss for a couple weeks, and started asking around. My ISP wouldn't admit to blocking anything, till I finally pushed a little harder and got them to admit what was happening. Just spoke with my contact there and she is going to unblock rhss new address for me. I've been unable to receive anything from TOPICA, LIST BUILDER, RACKSPACE and many others. These are all on a list of servers that have an opening for spam to get thru, so they block entirely. REALLY, REALLY FRUSTRATING, cause the spam, and x-rated emails still get through. OH well, as long as I can get RHSS, I guess I can continue to live without the rest.

well, I got my confirmation email so it looks like my ISP has unblocked you again. Now I can get my newsletters, etc. again.

Ok, I need some help again. Was there a newsletter yesterday or do I have another problem. I signed up again after my ISP unblocked your new server IP last week, but I didn't get a newsletter yesterday, although I have been getting notifications from threads I subscribed to. Would appreciated any feedback

You're not having a problem, Marlane. It hasn't gone out yet. I didn't get it finished until this afternoon and then I chickened out (after last week's fiasco!) and decided to wait until Chris got home tonite to send it out.

I do already have it posted on the site tho if you don't want to wait to get it in your email.

Thanks, Linda, you've made me feel so much better, knowing I don't have another problem here. I hate arguing with my ISP
