Corking the Spam Fire-hose

Happy Dance! Happy Dance! See me dance the Happy Dance!

Our crack IT team have just uncovered a leak through which a lot of spam was flowing. Corking … NOW!

Expected results: less spam! Yay!

Possible unintended side effects: some legitimate email may be blocked. Specifically, if some part of your mail system ignores “DNS MX records,” you could be affected. If your email to Tigris has suddenly started bouncing (time-outs, connections refused), ask your mail-server admins about “DNS MX.” Or comment here, and I’ll try to help out by private, non-Tigris email. (I’d suggest you email feedback, but if you can’t email Tigris, I guess you can’t!)
