Mail changes - planned
[Updated Sunday 2:00p] - Changes are now in effect.
Attachments are allowed now (most are, at least). Incoming viruses or otherwise “dangerous” files will be made a bit safer (the message is turned into an attachment; and the message you see, will say [VIRUS ATTACHED] in the subject line).
Attachments (in and out) are scanned for viruses using an open-source virus checker. This is not a good substitute for you running your own protection. We could (collectively) pay for a commercial virus checker. A better use for your money is to make sure your workstation is running antivirus of its own.
Spam filtering has changed a bit; please make sure you are filtering on “X-Spam-Flag: YES”. If you can only filter by subject, then look for SPAM in the subject line. A limited amount of customization is still available at https://mail.gigo.com/ - primarily affecting whitelists, blacklists, and a minimum score to consider a message as SPAM.
Finally, @gigo.com mail is being signed with DKIM. Some providers will give us a a positive nudge when they do their own spam checking when the mail is properly signed. I can do this for other domains as well - let me know if you want this.
I’m reachable as firstname.lastname@example.org or (if you have problems with that for any reason) email@example.com .
