Verizon Persists With European Email Blockade

The Register

US ISP Verizon is persisting with a controversial policy of blocking email sent from Europe. Since 22 December, mail servers at have been configured not to accept connections from Europe by default.

Verizon is blocking ranges of IP addresses belonging to British and European ISPs (the IP space from RIPE, APNIC, and more) in a misguided attempt to reduce spam. Domains are only unblocked following complaints, with Europeans effectively treated as guilty till proven innocent. More

A bit heavy-handed perhaps, but justifiable non the less. KS
