People need to learn that port 25 isn’t the free wheeling open port it once was

Dave Winer just posted a note over at Scripting News about not being able to send mail.  He is trying to send via HIS mail server, while using someone else’s connection (a hotel).  Generally, I have to say this is a bad thing.  When you are using someone as an ISP, use THEIR smtp server.  It shouldn’t be a problem.  If they don’t have their server misconfigured, they have traceability in case something foul goes out from their systems.  The other way – not so much 😦

Dave – you need some sort of comments section on your blog 😦
