Changelog Moved

We're collapsing several things into one location to improve product documentation. The changelog has been moved here:

https://docs.mxroute.com/en/changelog

Rspamd deployed on Arrow server

We've deployed rspamd in replacement to spamassassin on the Arrow server. This may change some of the email headers used for spam filtering by the server. The "SpamAssassin Settings" page in DirectAdmin is expected to function normally.

MX1 Server Shutdown Delayed

The shutdown of the MX1 server has been delayed to June 9th.

LiteSpeed on Ocean, One, and London

LiteSpeed web server deployed on Ocean, One, and London servers in attempt to speed up webmail performance.

Rspamd deployed on Echo server

SpamAssassin has been replaced with rspamd on the Echo server. This may change some of the email headers used for spam filtering by the server. The "SpamAssassin Settings" page in DirectAdmin will continue to function as normal.

Other servers will soon receive the same treatment.

MX1/Galaxy Shutdown

At the end of May (time not specific, we'll give time to account for timezones) the MX1 and Galaxy servers will be permanently shut down. These servers were based on our first product iteration, and are not salvageable. There are only a few customers left on them, and we've sent emails to everyone about this. A few were unreachable and no longer have valid email addresses on their MXroute accounts, hopefully they'll see the announcement here.

Anyone paid up beyond the month of May will receive a refund, these are being manually processed (a few each day).

While this is not how we intend to get rid of older servers over time, these two servers are unique. This should not have you questioning if other servers will see a similar fate in the future.

DirectAdmin disk quotas fixed

Disk quotas should now be displaying properly in DirectAdmin.

Outbound rate limit fixed

For some time our 300 outbound per hour limit has been a soft limit, as the rate limit module for rspamd had not been functioning as intended under some edge cases. This has been fixed, and the limit has been reapplied. You may be able to burst slightly over the limit, but should not rely on it.

mail.com / GMX bounce mitigated

If you recently sent an email to mail.com or GMX it is possible that you received this error returned back:

"Nemesis ESMTP Service not available No SMTP service IP address is black listed"

We've added mitigation for this now so that you will no longer receive bounce errors, and these emails will be delivered anyway while we work on building a relationship with the email provider in question.

Comcast bounce mitigated

Comcast has been returning messages like this for some of our IPs:

"554 resimta-po-03v.sys.comcast.net resimta-po-03v.sys.comcast.net 172.82.139.124 found on one or more DNSBLs"

Despite finding these IPs to be quite clean in our tests, Comcast appears to subscribe to some obscure RBL that we do not know to check (or they use their own internal RBL). Our relays were not configured to retry these emails from different IPs, and were instead bouncing them back to senders. We've added mitigation to our relays that should correct this. After we're satisfied that the change works in all cases, we will submit a PR to the open source project that we utilize for our relays.
