I've been getting a ton of error e-mails for a while now. I didn't think anything of it because everything was working fine and it didn't seem to be effecting the productivity of the server. Well, today I had to look through my trash folder. In the last 30 days I have received 360,000 error e-mails... wtf?!?

I found where they are coming from. The Comcast e-mail server. I run a lot of domains, some of the owners of these domains have Comcast e-mail accounts. So I forward their e-mail over to Comcast. In their infinite wisdom Comcast sends me 10-15 "return recipient unavailable" answers for every e-mail they consider spam.

I set my server in 'nice' mode so that users won't have their e-mail dropped if something goes wrong. My server holds onto their e-mail and keeps trying the Comcast server so the e-mail just piles on.

What are they thinking?!? How can a company get as big as Comcast and be so clueless about something as simple as e-mail. This isn't rocket science people.

Until they get a clue I'm making a rule about forwarding to Comcast accounts... it's NOT ALLOWED. This isn't the first time I've had a problem with Comcast's broken e-mail servers. It's not even the 10th time I've had problems with their e-mail servers. I forward to hundreds of servers, over 3 million e-mails pass through my server every day and they are they only one I've ever had a problem with.

ugh, stupid admin's piss me off....
