Need some help with my project

Well actually WE need some help.

I am part of the bongo project http://www.bongo-project.org

and part of our investigation into email is to determine a few things
about ISP's that will help us formulate our program.

as this is a very diverse group of people I thought it best to ask here
as we need as broad a test case base as we can get.

So please would you mind answering these few questions and then email
them to lhaig at haigmail dot com.

Thanks
Lance

1. What Country Are you in?
2. Does your ISP restrict all SMTP traffic and force you to use a relay
server?
3. Does your ISP have SMTP Auth on this relay server?
4. Does your ISP require TLS on this relay server?
5. Does your ISP rewrite outgoing mail messages for the sender from your
domain to a specified domain?
6. What other SMTP restrictions or issues do you have with your ISP?
7. have you checked out the bongo project website yet?

Re: Need some help with my project

Ah yes, the former Hula project.
1) USA
2) No
3) No
4) No
5) No
6) Unrestricted
7) Yes

I thought Hula looked cool during its development,
but I also figure it would end up as an abandoned
Novell project...

Good luck with it! If you can compete with
Zimbra you'll have something, since more and more
it looks like Zimbra may disappear under an MS
acquisition.

I thought Zimbra was acquired by Yahoo!.

I think he was referring to the fact that Microsoft is trying to buy Yahoo.
