No more forwarding to btinternet.com

Since BT handed their users' email processing from Yahoo to Openwave, things have gone from bad to worse. As a result it is no longer possible to forward emails to btinternet.com accounts through our servers (or anyone else's, come t that). The problem is that they only allow 50 such forwarded messages per day if they suspect some may be spam. If you have all your email forwarded, a lot of it will be spam, and as a result Openwave now "throttle" all users trying to send mail on that server to some of their customers.

BT Internet customers are up in arms about this. Our advice is to get a business-class email service if you want any control over what happens when people try to send you something. BT's domestic one just doesn't cut it.
