     If you wish the Internet to remain functional and not return to the days when videos stuttered and sometimes trying to get mail timed out because big carriers like Comcast felt others should pay them to carry their content even though their customers were paying them for access to that content, then you need to weigh in on Net Neutrality today.

     Check it out, explore, let me know of anything you think would make it better.

     Try it out on your Smart Phone, it’s all responsive and mobile friendly. Some of the webmail options work on some SmartPhones. If the default webmail doesn’t work well for you, try the RoundCube or RainLoop alternatives.  If neither of those work well, there is a ownCloud mail client that works very well on mobile devices.

SPF Policy Failures Affecting Incoming Mail

     I had a customer complain about being unable to receive e-mail from a particular site.  Upon examining the logs, I saw errors from our spf policy checker.  This is a perl script that looks up a domain and checks the spf records to be sure that the server attempting to deliver e-mail for that domain is a legitimate server for that domain.  It was failing even though the records looked legitimate and the server was in the allowed list.

     I Googled the error and found a note from the author saying it was caused by a change in systemd resolver but that he had fixed it in the spf script and the new fixed version was available from cpan.  I installed the version on span and so far the only spf rejections I’ve seen are legitimate so I believe this problem is fixed.
