The problem I have mentioned here in the past continues unabated. MCI
Mail is still continuing to dump large amounts of mail from the
Internet if they have any problem at all with a single address on the
I send dozens of copies of each issue of TELECOM Digest to subscribers
at MCI Mail. If so much as one address is incorrect (because the
person quits the service or changes addresses there without telling
me) then MCI Mail *refuses* to deliver any of the copies to anyone,
and dumps it all out.
Every other site I send to -- thousands of them -- can deal with
multiple addresses in the envelope, and an error in any one of the
addresses. But MCI Mail persists in doing things their way rather than
following the standards set up for email.
Each time I become aware of MCI Mail dumping an entire issue of the
Digest undelivered to their subscribers I have to make a separate
mailing list up just for them and remail that issue. This is happening
now about once or twice a week -- it used to be not more than once
every month or two. I've had technical people from MCI Mail say they
were going to look into it ... but that is as far as it has gotten. If
this cannot be corrected soon, then my response will be to delete
mcimail from the telecom mailing list and suggest that those
subscribers find some other site to receive the Digest.
If this is happening to me this often, I wonder how often other
Digests or mailing lists with readers at MCI Mail are getting bouces?
